“The arrogant, judgmental and egotistical appear to think they are better than us. Truth is, they are attempting to convince themselves that they are. Judging a person does not define who they are (for we really don’t know), but it does question why we are so ready to make such assumptions – and what it is within us that we are projecting upon them” ~ Unknown

The First Thursdays Durban 14 chosen by Marco Santoniccolo of SPIGA Durban on show at Sidebar 200 Florida Road Durban until end December 2016.

Go have a look as there is a huge difference between seeing one of these photos on your 18 inch monitor and being surrounded by 14 of them live at 46.8 inches each! Plus you can grab a glass of wine and light pasta while you sit there in this awesome Durban weather.

Sun Coast Casino final

I have picked up a new habit and it has to do with photos that are not up to scratch at all.

Such photos end up being “cannibalised” by yours truly and software on my computer.

On Sunday evening we visited Suncoast Casino and I tried a little HDR, which failed dismally.

The photos therefore ended up in my amateur artistic factory, and some of the results are shown below.

The Suncoast Casino website reveals:

“Set amongst towering palm trees and nestled against the beachfront along Durban’s “Golden Mile”, you will find 26 hectares of entertainment heaven – SUNCOAST Casino & Entertainment World. The complex is a haven of sun and fun with its Miami South Beach Art Deco style architecture, and offers an array of gaming, shopping and entertainment pursuits.

Opened in November 2002, SUNCOAST is a gambler’s paradise. The casino is the largest in Durban, boasting 1 450 slot machines and 56 gaming tables, as well as an exclusive Salon Prive called 77 Ocean Drive for higher limit slots and tables.

With 12 restaurants and fast food outlets, kid’s entertainment, 8 cinemas, SUNdeck, Boardwalk and a dance bar. SUNCOAST offers something for everyone, and is a premier entertainment destination for the whole family.

The complex caters for the business-person as well, with world-class conference and hotel facilities with Suncoast Towers and SunSquare Suncoast.

With a total investment of R1.4 Billion, SUNCOAST represents the largest single investment on Durban’s beachfront. Along with the International Convention Centre and uShaka Marine World, SUNCOAST forms part of the Golden Triangle, and is a key element in the rejuvenation of the Golden Mile.
