  1. With your keen eye and good sense of perspective, you have given us a wonderful idea of the height of these buildings. A love the juxtaposition of the new and the old. We have an Elgin in the Western Cape in a fertile area well known its grapes (and thus wines) as well as apple and pear orchards.

    • Thank you so much, Anne. Interesting to hear that you have an Elgin too. Not sure about wine, but our Elgin has several whisky distilleries in the area! ๐Ÿฅƒ
