A Hobbit Called Baby Jake

It has been a hard day for me as soon after Mandela's passing, my friend, Jacob Matlala, couldn't find any more opponents in his weight category and had to challenge the angels today in that great arena in the sky. The passing of Baby Jake hit me hard.

I first met this Hobbit Baby Jake about eight years ago at a Readathon project that both Baby Jake and I worked on. At the time I was working a contract with Metrorail who was a partner of Readathon, and my interest in photography was just starting. Although only Hobbit size, Baby Jake became bigger than life to me. Baby Jake, small boxer, big heart, you won't be forgotten.
