Just for the record:

All these pictures were taken with my Nokia N93, N97, N8 and now my Lumia 1020

I have moved to a much nicer and more central home in Germiston. Unfortunately, I had to give up my beautiful garden. I will have to remove some brick paving and make a little garden in the back My first priority is to get the antennas up!
