21 March 2009


Today is the equinox, and Human Rights Day, 49 years since the Sharpeville massacre.

I wanted to do a screen capture for my world time program, because today is the day when the day and night lines are closest to vertical. Next week they'll look quite different.

The leaves are beginning to turn. Is it autumn or winter? The geographers' winter, but our autumn.

The line on the map, and the line opn the ground -- photo taken about 6:00 pm on the N1 highway through Centurion going towards Johannesburg. The construction is for the Gautrain, the new express train service that will be crossing the highway at that point.
