Sandton Angles: The Wealthiest Square Mile in Africa, in Pictures

Sandton, dubbed as the wealthiest square mile in Africa, is a different world from many African cities, and if you pay close attention, you can capture the detail that went in and still goes into making it work - the infrastructure. In several spontaneous shots, Oscar Habeenzu, a coffee tourist, captured the beauty and elegance of Sandton buildings, at an angle, of the wealthiest square mile in Africa.

"As you invest or even holiday in South Africa, start by just doing a drive or a walk around Sandton. It is refreshing and eye-opening. Enjoy the shots that caught my attention", wrote Oscar Habeenzu to Cabanga Media Group, the publisher of his photographic series.

"Stopping for a moment to appreaciate the simple things of life in a fast paced Sandton business district often helps imaginations and thought processes, creating solutions for the day to day challenges of business in a complex and exciting South African economy. There is much potential for the country and continent, but only for those that can pause, look at things from a different angle, then re-engage, for profit and posterity. That is the basis of this themed collection, Sandton Angles. A few shots of Americano daily, my Canon, I took thought walks in a space of 30 to 50 days, and short many angles that caught my attention at specific moments of the day - morning, afternoon, sunset, just to captivate the beauty of Sandton buildings". continued Oscar Habeenzu, as he shed light on what inspired him to start this photographic series.
