I was lucky enough to spot one of these babies down and under construction, near Safal Steel( in Cato Ridge, South Africa. You generally spot them upright, carrying high voltage cables.....Managed to capture two of my favourite things at once, Hot Dip Galvanizing & my shallow am I..... :-)

Sometimes lunch can be interesting....

Cheviot Court

Nothing to do with Hot Dip Galvanizing, but this has to be one of my favourite Durban buildings. Cheviot Court on Musgrave Road, Durban South Africa. I have dreams of one day occupying an entire floor once the kids have left home. Just me, my cats and my laptop – writing all day long whilst savouring the views.
Durban has many Art Deco buildings, but sadly many of them have fallen into disrepair and neglect. What a pity…..
