Skywatch Friday - Route 67

This is one of the new sculptures along Route 67 in Port Elizabeth, but I am not sure what it is called or what it represents. If I have to venture a guess, the loops represent the voting line and propellers the crosses on ballot papers from the 1994 elections. I'll have to check this out.

Anyway it is one of 67 Public Art Works commissioned to symbolise Nelson Mandela’s 67 years of work dedicated to the Freedom of South Africa. 

This is what it looks like when you lie on your back on the sidewalk


I was on my feet when I took this shot, trying to get a good angle.


Skywatch provides links to many great pictures from around the world. Pop in you won't be disappointed.

It is pretty amazing. Somehow it recalls images of barbed wire.

Interesting . . . I haven't been to Port Elizabeth in way too long.

I haven't seen this one yet. As soon as an oppoetunity shows itself (and it isn't as hot) I want to go and walk the whole Route 67 and see it all.

Great shot! Love the perspective!

You are right - the shot where you are lying on the sidewalk is the better of the two, by a mile.
I want to free myself up so that I can do things like lying on the sidewalk, even when people are watching!!
