Fishing time

Okay, okay I'll lay off the harbour pictures for a while.
I can stop anytime I really

Exciting stuff!

Harbour panorama

In the foreground on the left is a wooden yacht that was a scout vessel in the battle of Normandy in the second world war, and is in the the process of being restored.
In the foreground on the right is a luxury yacht belonging to a German father and son, who are on their third round the world trip, it has also just finished being repaired.
And in the center? Me, on the deck of the yacht that I am repairing!
It looks like Port Elizabeth is the place to be if you need fixing.

Steel and sky #352!

Once again my proclivity for capturing obscure bits of steel against the sky comes through.
Some things you just have to accept!

From the deep(ish)

What strange object from the deep is this?

Who stole the sea?

We woke up to this this morning, leaving the house at the absurd hour of 6:30 to watch the boks get hammered.

This was the view from outside our local pub, the interesting thing being that it was packed inside.
A couple of brave souls had a draught in their hands before  the 7pm kickoff.
And for maybe the first time in my life I drank a coffee and not a beer in a bar :-)

And from the other side...

After yesterdays pic I had the idea to snap one from inside the harbour looking from the other direction.
So here's one "hot off the digital press", taken this evening.

Into the blue

I always enjoy a new perspective on an old landmark :-)

All aboard the land

So here I am, on the deck of a yacht that's on dry land.
Looking out to sea...

water and petrol

Here I am aboard a wind powered vessel, looking at the petrol storage tanks in the background.
Anyone got a light?

Found: heavy lifters!

I find this composition a bit too confusing, but I like it none the less.
