Pretoria CBD is officially one of my favourite spots. Character and charm of old buildings around each corner, with a few new modern buildings creeping up to introduce new life into a once very vibrant area.
Being greeted by friendly security guards and friendly pedestrians we got to see the inside of the Nederlands Bank, now used for the city’s tourism offices. I felt like a kid in a candy store. Just as I thought I couldn’t be more surprised with what this city could offer at 6 am on a Saturday morning, we came across more and more beauty. I am so glad Anke & Christo was brave enough to step out into the cold for the very early and very cold engagement shoot.
Thanks, Pretoria CBD for your charm and friendliness. Next time we want coffee Cafe Riche.
A city is distinguished from other human settlements by its relatively great size, but also by its functions and its special symbolic status. Pretoria CBD a gem I need to explore more often. Great architecture surrounded us as well as a surprising joyous vibe that followed us as we changed locations during the photo shoot. Overlooking the Pretoria State theatre from a nearby building rooftop we could catch the last of the soft winter sunlight before the surrounding high-rises buildings were the only sight left on the horizon. The capital’s hustle and bustle made up by locals jamming on the street corner in front of the State Theater’s entrance and the famous Taxi drivers hooting their way true late afternoon traffic.
