Stadium lighting seems to have been overlooked for nocturnal digital photos – colour correction is a bit of a nightmare as colour casts from differnt lighting is not seen by the human eye (well, not mine anyway)

Cick on the image to see it larger
There is No accurate seat number diagram that shows the seat numbers and the stairs!
Computicket’s seating numbers are not a replica of the stadium layout!
The colour coded blocks and numbers are the area where your seat will be found
Follow the lollipop colour codes to get to your seat area entrance

It’s a total mystery to me that the CTN stadium agents don’t have a website with the seat plan and all info on the stadium on it!

south view

[posted 15Nov09]

The building is very photogenic & close up it’s impressive – Green Point stadium, 68K seater – R4.7 billion to build, very controversial – And from Milnerton its way too big [was told that FIFA are paying most of it – by most esteemed cape town council official]

To enlarge any image click on it & to return to thumbnails use the back arrow

I recommend you look at the workers images who have spent over 2 years building the massive structure – there’s a glint in their eye – I think they feel proud of what they have created – swaggerists – init

eeish!

lots of guys hanging from ropes mountaineers at the buildings face - loads of climbing gear attached to them [image:Odette Herbert]..luckily the ledge is wide enough to sit on..one of the high flyers that bolt the building together hanging from a rope..bolting the material to the building outer metal frame..the wizkid architect - very nice bloke - very calm
OH122912a

testing testing - eeish.....never enough poly filler..has to be 50 metres from the ground - its uncomfortably steep to the bottom, up at the top of the stadium - magnificent view though - inward, can't see table mountain behind me
OH00151..rock climbers put finishing touches to metal paint work..lunch time - everyone on site rests - its all seriously strenuous work
in the rafters [roof has 9,000 glass panels covering 37 000 sq.metres] image:Odette Herbert..baby grass - fifa said it wasn't green enough for TV - rip it up start again..OH122997

paint touch up team..seating plastic removal team ..not sure what these men are doing material is still to be bolted down by men in orange

suspended by ropes - i think this man was part of the paint touch up team come rain or shine

he was surprised i wanted to take his photo - i really wanted to acknowledge the work force - visit was too rushed..such charming young men on site all beavering away..the stone mason who moved out of the way when a group of journalists filled the place he was working in..liked the black tie preventing anyone from invading the pitch to get to the other side and damaging the juvenile grass I noticed a plastic bag on the pitch which was speedily removed..this delightful man is the pitch security - to keep people off the grass - its off bounds to everyone

OH122966staer

this was our safety officer - a nightmare to get jounalists to cooperate and not to wonder off and to keep up [image:Odette Herbert]..this man works all day suspended from a rope - he's weighed down by climbing gear..local photographers & reporters, journalists local and from france and BBC team making a documentary on sport ..grey day at the coliseum [latin for colossal?]..staircase to footy heaven only for the alleged footy aristocracy. eeish!
main entrance looks jolly smart

Cape Town’s New Dusk Silhouette: Table Mountain, Lions Head + 2010 stadium
If you click on the image you will see it more clearly
I’m shocked to see what a massive structure it is – visible from 15 kilometers away
.
If you were to drive straight through the mountain you would be heading South for Cape point [peninsula] – For me the most staggeringly beautiful part of the Cape – National Geographic vistas – only an hour drive away

Cape Town 2010 stadium – looking like a space ship this morning as the sun reflects off the white fabric its encased in (Monday 13.12.09 at 6AM)

Tell me it it’s not a tad out of proportion to the CBD! [central business district]

Also looks like a speed boat – doing a quick turn with no wake!

How’s the pink grey smog?! – not so clean the air at the tip of Africa – our carbon foot print in Cape Town is definitely first world!

A one stop stadium images spot!
At least that’s what I’m attempting to do
All my Cape Town stadium posts, from all my various sites, onto this dedicated site – so you don’t have to go all over the place to see them
Not sure if I’m going to see this project through – time constraints and really maddening behind the scenes html code protocols! Which even the geeks can’t crack!
