Fade to white

As you may have noticed I've been spending more time in "town" lately.
But I'm feeling the urge to photograph some factories again :-)

Silver seas

If you are looking for a good sundowner spot, the ABYC                          
(Algoa Bay Yacht Club) can't be beat.

Down at the campanile

Now here's a building that is often lurking in the distance, and yet one I have never photographed before.
So ladies and gentlemen, presenting an extremely old building (not sure how old).
I give you for your viewing pleasure...

The story of 1 boot

Don't tell me, you've heard this one before...

Wisdom of the inner city

Graffiti with poor spelling! Another sign that todays youth are doomed!

No Stop!

Would you stop here?

Slipping down the sidestreet to the sea

Look, there it is, under the freeway....

Beauty on the outskirts

This is a building I have long had a fascination with - an old disused power station on the outskirts of town.
Hopefully next time I'll get out the car and spend a bit more time around here :-).

South African Revenue Service

Regarded by some as the only government department operating with any degree of efficiency.

Once upon a time

Once upon a time (okay last month) this is the street in which I used to work.
So I don't have a computer and internet access any more.
But I'm almost finished building my own :-).
And then my recent erratic posting should get better - gotta keep you guys on your toes.

Piggy in the middle

The inner city, not so hardcore after all!

And the rain came (some more)

Hey, here in Port Elizabeth we get rain so seldom you end up staying home and snapping photo's!

Speed kills II

Our bus lane is missing two of its new lampposts as you can see.
According to the locals it was a taxi at 3 o' clock in the morning. And by taxi I mean one like that white van thing in the background (for you overseas visitors).

And the rain came

Fantastic for our drought, not so much when your current field of employment is fixing boats outdoors
(you know, as an example..)

Dark days for civilization

Sometimes I wonder :-)

What's for supper?

In response to Thursday's post, here's a snap from around the corner.
It doesn't have the incongruity of the toilet/jawbone combination, but I do wonder why the signwriter  decided to use 2 different fonts?

Weekend sailing anyone?

Staring down the sun

And no, I wasn't the driver :-)

What's for lunch?

I found this gem on a recent visit to the inner city.
My powers of logic prevent me from making any further comment.
Feel free to help me out folks!

Here's the other half (um, I think)

Steel against the sky

Here we have a public sculpture by one of  Port Elizabeth's foremost sculptors:
Anton Momberg.
Here in my home town public sculpture isn't a big thing, so this is exciting :-).
