View from the other side

For the first time since the world cup I took a walk around the far side of our stadium.
Space, glorious space!
Let's not talk about the unused bus lane )-:

Hot off the press

I took this on a walk through the city center this morning.
Once again the skies are turning )-:
Enough already!

Words cannot express...

I came across this on the outside of a well known spot in Port Elizabeth.
I have walked this way many times, but never seen this before!

Washing blues

Today is an important day for me, in a computer geek kind of way.
I am working from Ubuntu OS for the first time today.
And I am starting a new label.
Woah, slow down there boy...

Blue house on the corner

This is our local (closest) bar/shebeen/pooltable/big screen sports dive establishment.
'nuff said :-)

North End happy hour

Have I been, um no.
And if I did.
Strictly for research purposes you understand!

The view from here II

From the back "stoep" - that's porch to the rest of you global visitors. I'm not sure if it has any other names..

Holiday at the seaside

Port Elizabeths beaches have many tourist-friendly spots.
Luckily for people like me, spots like this as well.

Moving Day

I snapped this from upstairs at my local shopping centre.
Shame, and these guys have to work in the rain!

Sign of the times?

Now those of you who frequent my little corner of cyberspace on a regular basis will know that I have a proclivity for the empty streets type of vibe.
But this is the first time I have come across something like this!

Inside the Fischers building gallery

This morning I finally got a good look round the Fischers Jewelers building in our city center.
This is the main gallery downstairs, and there's a whole lot more to come upstairs.
What really piqued my interest though was mention of the basement underneath this space.
There were no lights to see it today- but I shall return...

Baakens River Flooding

After an intense downpour last night, this is what our local river looked like this morning.
Usually it barely flows!
And in the background of pic3 you can see the new bridge that was built after the last flooding.
