Street Fever

Occasionally, I will snap a pic on the spur of the moment. And realise that there is not a single alteration or  manipulation on my part that will enhance it.
And I suppose that is what street photography is: uncomposed, uncontrived, unplanned.

And allow me to tip my (unemployed :-) hat to Raskolnikov.
For his portrayal of street photography.
(and I'm not really unemployed, I've just traded my previous 8-5 for part time work,
so far so good)

Home time

And the pigeons go home to roost.

Spot the idiot

It looks as if Firefly and I have been wandering around the same neck of the woods lately.
My second pic here gives me an icy feel - which is quite apt at the moment.

Bright skies

Now that I don't have an 8 to 5 job, I have a lot more time for cloud gazing :-).

Train through Redhouse

Now if you leave North End and carry on going, you find some really interesting stuff.
Here we have the train passing through Redhouse, a small village where the only thing that happens is that the train passes through!


I am on holiday at the moment, but remaining in Port Elizabeth.
So you'll get some "non-North End photos" coming up.
But still plenty of North End ones :-).
I might even redo this one in B&W..

An abandoned roadhouse shot in black and white.

This is from a meander down the main drag on Monday. 
One of these days I'll take some pics of the old post office for some better architecture.
Then there's also a not quite as old but still not the new one post office as well.
Looks like my work's cut out for me!

Pigeon in the window

Following a recent post by the always interesting Raskolnikov I accidentally snapped this bird.
Now Raskolnikov doesn't seem to have a comments option any more, so here is a post instead.

Chaos at the courthouse

More really bad advertising on the front of our courthouse.
Justice just isn't the same these days...
