Finally the rains came to Johannesburg.
Not a huge thunderstorm, just a gentle drizzle.
Enough to put droplets onto the plants in our garden,
but not nearly enough to break the drought.
We need to be thankful for every drop.
Even though an elephant is so huge,
it treads very lightly on its feet.
In fact, they actually walk on their toes.
A bullet hole after a hectic Saturday night?
Not at all…it is actually a hole in an ice cube.
And speaking of ice…
Through a glass darkly.
My manager…or at least he thinks that he is.
This is him doing his “I am really not interested” face.
This hat belongs to one of the locals in Linden.
Like him, the hat is very well known and can
more often than not be found on the corner of 4th Ave and 7th Street.
Food glorious food…and one of the many markets
in down town Johannesburg
These plates have been cemented onto the wall at 1 Eloff Street.
I like the look so much that we are going to recreate it at our house.
Any one got any old plates they no longer need?
Sunset from my office/study/man cave window.
Looking at South Africa from the air…
From a coach…
And while on a walk through our suburb
Sunset over the Sahara Desert
This one never allows me to take pictures,
but I caught her while she was contemplating knitting a blanket.
Rain on a spider web in the Natal Midlands
Colourful shopping carts in a supermarket parking lot.
Sunrise over the Indian Ocean on a bitterly cold morning
I raise a glass and propose a toast to all the places
that I have visited and all the people that I have met.
