The race

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Ashutosh Garg

This was shot on an Ostrich farm near Oudtshoorn, South Africa. Ostriches are farmed for their eggs, skin, meat, feathers and the farms also make money by providing tours on the farm as well organizing ostrich races. While it was a novel experience, I was not very happy about visiting the farm and encouraging the practice.

Location: Oudtshoorn, South Africa
