What a day.
Several hours on this beautiful beach in Struisbaai, under dramatic skies:
And then the drive home, any negative feelings about leaving Agulhas expunged by having almost the entirety of the newly-resurfaced R316 to ourselves.
Other photos will have to wait, I want red wine and football this evening. Priorities, ne?
But if you find yourself desperate for some 6000 imagey goodness, firstly, have a word with yourself, and then secondly, head to my Instagram.
I’m hoping to take lots of photos while I’m away this week. Some of them will end up on my Flickr, some on my Instagram.
I’ve got almost 300
posts pictures on there now and I’m adding works of painted light on a fairly regular – yet hopefully not overbearing – basis. Here are a few recent examples:
If you should decide that you want to follow me on Instagram, here’s the link. If you should decide that you want to tell your friends to follow me as well, that’s also fine.
It’s been a weird week:
Is it any wonder I’m still a little confused?
Beer. Beer is probably the best solution here.
We at 6000 Towers think that Iceland is pretty cool. We might have mentioned that before. Repeatedly.
But here’s yet another feather in the cap of the chilly volcanic island’s cap: Lögreglan – The Reykjavík metropolitan police official Instagram account.
How cool are these guys?
Brekkan getur oft verið ansi brött, en ekkert er óyfirstíganlegt… #þrjárbrattar & Brace yourselves winter is coming
Fuglunum gefið brauð & Var sumarið ekki að undirbúa komu sína? #reiðhjólasumar #snjóengill
Presumably, there’s some actual police work going on at some point as well. Presumably.
I do use Instagram, but I use it to share photos rather than to follow other people – there’s Flickr and or twitter for that sort of thing. However, I’m going to make Lögreglan the first and only account I’m following. And I won’t be alone, with their cult following of almost 19,000 users.
I somehow can’t see the Cape Town metro cops doing something like this, and even if they did, I can’t see it being nearly as good as the Lögreglan one.
Yes, South Africa is very cool, but Iceland is (quite literally) a bit cooler.
As viewed from the bedroom window this morning:
