Photography

University of Pretoria

The University of Pretoria has a very pretty campus, with many of the buildings worthy photographic subjects. Over the years I have built up quite a sizeable collection of photographs taken on the campuses of the University. As far as possible, I tried to take these photos over the weekend (or during vacs), so as to minimise the number of people in the pictures. As the it is the largest residential university in South Africa, this is not always possible.

Kya Rosa

Kya Rosa was the original home of the Transvaal University College, situated in central Pretoria. The house was recreated on the corner of Lynnwood and Roper Streets at the main entrance to the university.
