Heritage with 2nd Take

2nd Take team workin’ their Heritage!!

Heritage Day, 24 September, was a Public Holiday on which South Africans across the spectrum were encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions, in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all its people. It was also a day in which to kick back, relax and make some memories with your mates.

Across the board we had a social phenomenon of Braai Day which was a celebration of South Africa’s rich cultural heritage as well and its unique national pastime; the Braai. The aim was to unite all South Africans by encouraging us to take some time off and  partake in a fun and boundless activity shared by all demographic groups, religious denominations and body types. Who doesn’t like a good lamb chop? Even vegetarians can get in on the action by enjoying some chargrilled mushrooms with melted cheese or a deliciously fresh potato salad.

We decided to start celebrating right here at the office where we ruffled up any and every item of clothing that remotely resembled any of the diverse cultures that we have on our rails. And of course any reason to take a minute off work I appreciated. We quickly turned our quiet studio into a fun photo shoot merging Heritage day and Braai day.

We got to step away from our ordinary day, tap into our alter egos and get creative. It’s always fun to get dressed up and be a little bit of a model. There was a festive energy in the office, one that mimicked what Heritage Day is supposed to represent. A group of people from all walks of life having a good time together.


The day before a long weekend couldn’t have ended any better as it set the tone for the rest of September. What do you think of our Heritage Day photo?

Life is for the living; celebrate it.
