We are the world

I always find it interesting when travelling to see how our cities’ architecture have been shaped by European influence.

Residential flats, Barcelona - Spain

Old building, Joburg - South Africa

Big Ben, London - UK (photo Alan Hutchison)

City Hall, Cape Town - South Africa

Acropolis, Athens - Greece

Monte Casino, Joburg - South Africa

Ironically, I am struggling to “find” our style.  I mean South African style.  Our cities and towns are crowded with Tuscan Villa’s that don’t reflect our uniqueness at all.  If you think you found a house or building that encompass our style, please take a picture and send it to me!

  1. Great shots, you’ve really captured the essence of each city’s personality.

      Thanks Savannah…greetings fellow wordpress blogger! Although I have been to all the cities, I cannot take credit for all of them. The Big Ben and City Hall pics are not mine. I couldn’t find the owner of the latter.

      • I’m so jealous of your traveling to all of those places! It’s great when you notice the little things that join all of the world together like architecture. I can’t wait to get back to CT!
