The year was 2006 and the boom was at its peak and I had had enough. The country was a awash with money and I had never been as busy. I had even saved up most of a deposit deposit for a house. You know because everyone else was buying a house I might as well get on the band wagon.
I decided not to. Instead, I pack up my gear in to my van and headed for Africa with the intention of taking a photograph of the Sahara.
