Got to love digital cameras', so here are a bunch of PE photos, I am putting them in a seperate thread because its the way I see PE, which is not always everyone else's view. I am a big transport fan, so most things that I photograph are transported related. But every now and again I slip up and take something non transport related.
I have bundled them into catagories, hopefully I will find the time during the week to send the balance through. I hope you enjoy them, and please don't think I am trying to be 'funny' by not putting them in the first PE thread, its just that they might not appeal to everyone. :)

Thanks for all the wonderful Port Elizabeth pictures, Moby! It's so nice to have a PE forumer, for so many in here know F0000L about PE, let alone what it looks like. So, we can expect more nice pictures & info about your town?
