Night corner

I've finally gotten around to shooting some the-other-side-of-sunset pics. 
I have a really basic camera, and yet I've never used half the settings.

And last night I couldn't connect to anything Google related, so my best intentions were thwarted.

Sunday morning Surprise

Nothing like an incidental manhole cover to make an image.
One of the few in this part of town that remain I should add.

Broken toy implied

I shot this about a block away from the spring shot, interestingly enough.

Springtime in North End

Forgive my inexperience with photographing flowers and trees.
I do love them though, and walk the dogs every morning through these weeds  flowers!

Sepia Sunrise

Well you know, close to sunrise..

Non-Northend Monday

Just to prove I do get out of North End occasionally, here's one from the neighboring village of Seaview, snapped this very morning as an impulse of me wanting to hear the sound of crashing waves.

Welcome to North End

Yesterdays rugby game between the Springboks and the All Blacks brought some life to our street.

I'm always excited to see people being drawn to our city centre.
Come back soon guys.

Station on the mend

Out of destruction/good photos for urban bloggers :-)

yuppie graffiti

Damn yuppies are everywhere...

closing time

I'm posting 2 pics in a row that I took together, not something I like to do.
But I've got work up to my ears at the moment, so forgive me dear viewers.

Sunday Rain

My ritual walk to buy the Sunday paper was a cold one.
Luckily there was a cup of good coffee waiting for me at home :-)

Imperfect panorama

Forgive my badly stitched pano, I meant to return to shoot better angles, but the train station is closed after a gas explosion. So this will have to do.

Sign of the times II

I must confess, this is at the beachfront and not in North End.
It does have that industrial aesthetic though.

North End downtime

As much as I like the daily chaos of our main drag, quiet evenings are a good balance.

Street rainbow

The urban version of the rainbow :-)

talking to the sky

Blue skies, now that's more like it.
Forgive my preoccupation with the weather lately, but us Africans can't handle all this rain..

Panorama Saturday

I haven't done a panorama for a while now.
This is one of my Hugin panorama stitches, If you are running Ubuntu download it, it's simple and very powerful.
And if anyone knows of a panorama viewer plug-in for blogger or wordpress please let me know.

Who blew the roof?

I like this shot for what it is, blown-out foreground included.
So we'll leave the reasons for its sad state for another day, shall we?

Over-the-top colour can be quite gimmicky, but I hope not in this case.
Then again that's the great thing about a blog: spontaneity, the best medicine.

No more falls

Another memory from days gone by.
And as for my post of the train station, there was a serious gas explosion there a few days after I took that picture, you can read about it over at myPE
I shall have to return..

The view from the main drag, not too bad.

Colour in the details

I think I've taken more shots under this stretch of freeway than anywhere else.
Which fits nicely into my idea of not having to travel to take good pics.
Not that I wouldn't mind travelling you understand...

Down there by the train

When last were you in the Port Elizabeth train station?
Me, not this side of puberty!
