224 hotel pretoria
The Hotel 224, Pretoria.

A short walk from the Union Buildings is the Hotel 224, where we headed for the next photo session – sunset over Pretoria. The 15th floor conference centre, kindly opened for us by the hotel’s understanding management, proved to be an ideal vantage point for the spectacle. And spectacle it turned out to be, with just the right amount of cloud about to add interest to the sky without blotting out the sun.

Arcadia, somewhat inappropriately named perhaps, is Pretoria’s main high-density living district.

“Thanks” to Hotel 224 for opening your facilities to us, and thanks to Pretoria Stadstappers Fotoklap for organising a great photowalk. In the next post we’ll venture in Johannesburg’s inner city and a couple of special buildings. Until then… 🙂
