Stone Town Scenes

A few miscellaneous scenes from Stone Town; undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I haven’t done justice to the winding alleyways and romantic decay that is Stone Town. I think I was so overwhelmed that I failed to even try and capture the magic of the atmosphere. Stone Town is a bustling little place, yet its ambience is peaceful and calm. Layers of peeling paint and crumbling cement are punctuated by elaborate Zanzibar doors and strung together with swooping electricity wires. It’s one of those places that makes you incredibly aware of the tiny space in time that your life occupies; just how random it is that this place looks the way it does right now, and that you are there to see it that way. It makes the sometimes difficult concepts of change and decay feel like the most natural processes in the world.
