going to work pic style :)

taking pictures while driving to work...
very entertaining stuff

... ok the pic's are a bit jumbled...
and i took all of the pics while driving
i thought i would show you what i see every morning of the week...
above is quite a pretty street i drive down, with a yellow taxi driving past... this is NOT how our taxi's looks like, i think these yellow taxi cabs are done by the AA (automobile association) but i think it's too expensive for the average south african to afford, so we do the sensible thing and rather buy a car for ourselves ;)

this is where i work, behind the high wall and the high security gate :)

the neighbouring guest house dustbins, i think they're quite prettily decorated! every house is issued with one of these dust bins, previously dogs had a field day eating everybody's garbage, remember those days?!

aint that a pretty gate... yes this is what most houses in SA look like... hmmm but you can't see the house right?! hehe that's cause there are high walls and electric fencing to keep us safe from the skollies :)

arrive at work... 8 o'clock sharp!


i listen to highveld on my way to work...

the average speed i drive off the highway... i hate traffic!!

that is NOT a tree, it's a cellphone tower cleverly disguised as a tree, vodacom initiative, there are palm trees too, cool don't you think!

career junction with a pole add... i think it was for a ice cream taster.... hehe

this is a sculpture in a park i pass every day, quite cool, huge head kind of effort

that's the voortrekker monument... and yes that is a smudge it's not a ufo :)
morning traffic... need i say more!

more... i like this pic... with the sun

that's me, see the hair is curly and getting there!!

there you go... that's how i get to work and what i see EVERY SINGLE MORNING Monday to Friday... i thought of turning this into a meme but hey everybody is so bloody irritable about meme's i thought i would rather not... hint hint for those who loves taking pics... and anybody else who wants to do this... just lemme know so i can go check yours out :)

hint... hint... these two girls absolutely loves taking pics... come on girls!!

ANGEL!!!!



this was so much fun :)

You know, I think I might just do this tomorrow. I love a good project.

BUT...there's no WAY that my journey to work is anywhere as near as pretty as yours.

Tamara said...

What a kewl idea. So going to do this. Hmmm... will have to find my camera cable. Just don't let the Metro Police catch you while you're snapping away in your car.

sweets said...

bic: cooooooooooool!!! can't wait!!

jacks: i know i was also under the impression that the area i work in is not too shabby :)

tam: that's why most of the pics are on the skew side... i had the camera on the steering wheel with my finger on the button... hehe

I'LL BE WATCHING YOUR BLOGS!!!!
YEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAA :)

The Divine Miss M said...

Jenty said...

I love the post!! What a cool idea!!

sweets said...

thanks jenty! well what are you waiting for?! yours would be to die for, you take such amazing pics :)

The Divine Miss M said...

Damn. Foiled again.

Cape Town isn't like that! I swear!

happy snapper said...

Ah awesome post Sweets! What a cool idea. I think I wanna do it, but I live so close to work, my drive is really short, and there aint much to take pictures of.

BUT

I am changing jobs at the moment, first day at the new place is on the 2nd June, and then I hit the traffic and all that again, BLAH...so I think I will save it until then :)

Blue Sunflower said...

What a cool thing to do....

I loved the pics - so original...

ozymandiaz said...

If I did that all the pictures would be dark as it is still night when I go to work.
Traffic is better though

Bridget said...

This was an AWESOME post Sweets.

Although Huighveld???? WTF???

Parenthesis said...

This was a great idea - thanks for sharing a little bit of your life with us. Must replicate it!

Mandy said...

Haha I just posted a photo meme on my blog, I think next I will have to try this one! Looks like fun!!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Hmmm... I ain't complaining. I enjoyed the pics. But... ain't taking pics while driving like maybe as dangerous as cell phone talkin' while drivin'?

Mel said...

Cool idea. I actually miss good old Pretoria, NEVER thought I would utter those words but its true.

Caz said...

Oh alright, fine then. I will do it too. Your reverse psychology is impressive and i loved your post :)

Globus said...

at least the sun's shining. those houses with high walls are scary. still, the walls help child-proof the gaff and keep the kids out, i guess!

Tamara said...

So I finally did it - my (not as interesting) pics are up.
