In December 2012 I had the opportunity to spend a few hours in down town Johannesburg. It was an area that I had not visited for some years. We travelled down the M1 passing the Nelson Mandela Bridge and the CBD on the way. Whilst driving close to the end of Simmonds Street we came across a warehouse on fire and stopped to take some close up shots. Two fire engines were already on scene but no-one stopped us getting up close to take pictures.
