One Saturday in July, at the drop of a hat, my wife and I decided to take a drive out to a small town (not much more than a large village actually) called Cullinan in the Gauteng Province. This is the spot where the famous, largest gem quality diamond with a weight of 3106ct in the rough was found. However, we did not take the opportunity to go into the museum to look up the history of the town. We decided to rather scout the place to see what interesting things we might come across.

Needless to say, we did have a few interesting experiences. I will discuss each one as I upload the image/s that I captured that afternoon.

This captivating scene was in the veld, close to the railway line, not far from the old railway station, where there are a number of interesting antique shops and a realy cool restaurant and pub which have taken over the old station building.

My wife was wandering how long she would have to wait to get a lift in this oooold scrapped DKW! ;-)

I have posted another shot of this DKW, and other photographs, on my John Golden Photography website.

Previously I said that I will post a photograph I made of a near conjunction of Venus, Jupiter and the moon on 2015-06-20 where these three heavenly bodies were close enough to each other for me to be able to capture them in a single image. Watch out for this in the next few days.
