A few weekends ago a group of Cape Town Flickrites had a meet-up at Muratie Wine Estate. Part of the old cellar building is used as a gallery and I took this shot there, using the archway as a frame.

New Shoes

I’m pretty impressed with Green Cross shoes. On Saturday I bought myself a new pair of shoes for work as the soles of my old ones were getting rather worn and one sole had a split in it that had me feeling rising damp whenever I walked around outside in rainy weather.

I bought a black pair of the 7610 style that feel more like takkies (sneakers) than smart shoes, so they are very comfortable yet smart enough to fit in with my work wear. The reason that I’m so impressed with Green Cross shoes is that I looked in Moneydance last night and found that I bought my last pair in October 2002. I think that close to 5 years of almost daily wear is pretty good mileage for a pair of shoes.
