St John's College



But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles - Isaiah 40:31

Today has been a very busy day for me. First off the starting blocks was the Italian Greyhound End of Year Picnic at Golden Harvest Park. So with my three iggies eager to get going we headed out for a morning of dog walks and braaing. There were little scallywags everywhere, running, chasing each other and just having a ball.

After a wonderful lunch braai it was a rush to drop off the dogs back home and get to the photowalk at St John's College. The walk was arranged by an old boy, Dr Richard Brooksbank, one of the Joburg Photowalkers and a good friend of mine. Walking amongst the hallowed halls of this old Johannesburg private boy's school was a like being in a fusion of old British colonialism and modern art world. The Anglican based school was founded in 1898 but had to close after a year due to the outbreak of the Second Boer War. It reopened soon after the signing of the peace treaty between Britain and Transvaal. The Joburg Photowalkers spent a wonderful afternoon at St John's exploring all the nooks and crannies of this old institution.

And now for the cherry on top, the Joburg Photowalkers End of Year Shindig. Jane was daring enough to open her home to us and after souring high like eagles at St John's we descended to her lovely home in Norwood for the party of all parties. No sushi off bellies of nubian women but we had a hoedown of note. Now for 2012...
