Road trip in B&W

Some "old-school" B&W images from my recent road trip.
Upington Airport has International status.
Who knew...
Maybe this cleaner is suffering from jet-lag?

The long and winding road...

The landscape can be very desolate.

These "rest stops" can be found at regular intervals.

I wondered where this high voltage line begins and ends

A farm road next to a farm stall that sold the BEST raisins.
It is called Heksie se huisie Padstal

Fellow travelers...

Break time.

Part of the solar array at the KSOI

There is ALWAYS time for a picture.

The folk in the area were most welcoming.
This truck actually stopped so that I could take this picture

And, of course, the driver did not want to be left out

This bolt caught my eye...

The Northern Cape in one image...
Windmill, sheep and Kokerboom (quiver tree)

The iconic image of this part of South Africa.

Many thanks to the Upington staff for their friendly service
