We shall rise


So here goes a change of format, one god post or so a week or so instead of my sporadic attempts to keep up a daily blog. The perils of a working man.

Thoughts from the week

The city held an urban run a couple of weeks ago, so people who don't usually go near the city centre get to go a-wanderin.

I found this one lurking is a reasonably suburban area.
It's amazing what you find when you look.

And another one! 
It's amazing what we live amongst.

Down at the power station

This is on the hospital premises, and I presume for those power cuts we seem to have been having a lot of lately.
I hope this set up works..

Our endless Summer days

Runway to the stars

There air is still way too cold. But let's hope those summer days (and evenings) are just around the corner.

Round and round

From the traffic circle on Mount Road.

Night crawlers

Today is the first day of spring, and it i a suitably miserable day.
The nights have been getting a bit warmer though, encouraging the odd nocturnal neighborhood stroll.

The road

I liked this photo when I took it, then I didn't and now I do!

Going nowhere

But you know, one day..

Stories from the weekend

I will never tire of our city center.

Some assembly required

There are quite a few houses around here being worked on all of a sudden.
A sign of some sort of economic turn around?
Or is it the opposite.

Looks: who needs 'em

The Weirdness continues...

This spraypainter must be a serious underachiever - come on, put a 
bit more effort in!

Bad weather blues

And more to come this weekend.
As I remember from my high school geography, we are supposed to be a summer rainfall region.
Climate change here we come!

Our endless Winter days

And the cold evening air continues...

Journey to the underground

Okay, we don't have an underground. And we have a very poor public transport system.
But still a good spot for photographs.

Journey to the center

I would rather shop/chill out in our city center than in the "malls".
There are good clothing shops: Edgars, Truworths, Birch's, Markam etc.
And I'll let you in on something, now that the end-of-season sales are on, these branches have far more stock than their suburban counterparts!

NE holiday

I've taken a week off, and am enjoying the sights of our city that are in the immediate vicinity.
Plenty to keep me happy..

Not actually, this spot has been earmarked for low cost housing...

5 minute respite

This is the most sun we've seen all day!

Land of no ladders

I don't know if it's just me all of a sudden, but I seem to be noticing a lot of this type of aesthetic going on.
Is it a "glass half full/empty" scenario?

Shuttered in

And it's some sort of government/municipal building to boot!

Of cold skies

Donkin downhill dash

Foe those of us who still had the energy after the Richmond hill street music festival, Sunday presented us with another great spectator event. Let's hope there's plenty more to come!

Men at work

As shot through a dirty window :-)

What goes on?

Your imagination could go crazy with this one!

Grey Days

We have had weeks of bad weather, and it looks like it will still be around for a few days.

My hometown

Thanks to Adele.
Not that I'm a pop music fan, and not that she is a pop singer.

The stadium from the inside

As a non sports lover I have never really had a reason to go inside our new stadium.
This weekend however was a completely different situation.
Why you ask? There was a wine show there :-).
