It was a let down (although I did learn quite a few tricks for photoshop!!). I took my camera along in the hope of there being lots to photograph – – – but nevertheless!! The lenses weren’t really cheaper than when you buy it in the shops (which was what I was after!), but as I say, it wasn’t a complete let-down!
It was held in the Coca-Cola dome in Johannesburg! For those of you who don’t know what it looks like… It is a HUGE dome… a self-supported dome!! Most people don’t/won’t realize how awesome this structure really is (but from an engineering view-point… AWESOME!! 😀 )… So I am always excited to get to see this structure… it never gets old!
These are panorama compiled from the same photographs – – – I let it stitch two different ways (the difference should be obvious)… Each one conveying the enormity of a different aspect!!
I was not planning on doing anything with these photos (else I would have taken enough to complete the roof structure!)! I took it out of complete boredom… & not to waste carrying my camera along with me for the day!! 😉
So, today marks a highly anticipated day throughout South Africa – – – & I believe in a lot of other countries as well!!!! Today was the kick-off of the Rugby World Cup 2011. Myself not being at all bothered about the sport makes me socially inapt (at least in this country!!!). 🙂 When I logged onto facebook today, my whole screen exploded with images of the south african flag, or a springbok, or both!!!! Crazy…. 😉
I decided that today’s post – – – to keep in the spirit of the event – – – should be at least related to the big RWC!!!!
I took this pic a few years back with my normal samsung digital camera at a game between the Springboks and Ireland/Wales (or someone of sorts… oops!!!)
In the most excited tone that I could muster….: “Gooooooooo bokke!!!!!!” 😉
