Umkhaya Tree

Over the last few months, I’ve taken Idunnohowmany photos of these trees, just below the top Hillside Dam and I’ve never really captured their size. So this time, I decided not to even bother, and just aim to show the tree how it appears when standing on the dam wall.


Matshemhlope River Rail Bridge...

In 1897, the railway line arrived at Bulawayo via Botswana. This little bridge (below) crosses the Matshemhlope River in Suburbs. Its no longer part of the railway system, but each time I cross it, I image the huge steam beasts that used to lumber over it regularly. 221 more words

Taken from a Kopjie, overlooking the trees below the top, Hillside Dam.

I love the lone Jacaranda tree nestled in there among the Acacia trees.


Random Streets in Hillside...

This photograph is taken on Moffat Avenue, Hillside, Bulawayo. I’m guessing it was named after Robert Moffat, a missionary who came to Africa in the mid 1850’s. 95 more words
