10 years of Port Elizabeth Daily Photo

Today is the 10th birthday of Port Elizabeth Daily Photo.  Yes, exactly 10 years ago to the day PE Daily Photo was started by SAM (Sue and Max Hoppe) with a post featuring some generic facts about Nelson Mandela Bay.  Two days later they were off and running, doing 500 posts before passing the baton on to me.  I did my first post on the 15th of March 2009 which means I have been at it for about 8 1/2…


Celebrating 3000 posts on Port Elizabeth Daily Photo

Today is a milestone day for me here on Port Elizabeth Daily Photo.  This day marks the 3000th post I've done on this here blog.  When I started blogging on Firefly the Travel Guy (then known as The Firefly Photo Files) on 9 July 2008 I did so because I wanted to share with people the places around me.  At the time I was a staunch follower of Port Elizabeth Daily Photo while Sue and Max Hoppe (then known online…


Happy New Year from PE Daily Photo

As I'm typing this post the first day of the new year is nearly over.  Although I didn't do much today, I really did not have the time to do this post.  Pretty much sums up my 2016.  Too much to do and not enough time to do it in.  It also means that often my blogs were the ones that pulled on the short end of the stick either through the quality of the post, the quality of the…


Wishing you a Merry Christmas

As Oom Oubaas on 7de Laan would say, "Gun my die verleendheid om 'n paar gevleulde woorde te spreek."  As Christmas Day comes around, I would like to wish all my Christian friends and followers a Merry Christmas.  May this day be a blessed one full of good times with friends, family and loved ones.  Hope the day brings lots of gifts, food and fun, but most importantly, don't forget what the day is really about.  Celebrating the birth Jesus…

Saturday braai time

It's winter... or wait, perhaps summer.  With the temperature hitting around 30C today the perfect end to this lekker day was a lekker braai.

Celebrating 3000 posts

I often hear and see comments that there is nothing to see or do in and around Port Elizabeth.  If that was true, would Port Elizabeth Daily Photo be passing post # 3000 today?  Yes, you read correctly. Today is PEDP's 3000th daily post.Port Elizabeth Daily Photo was started on 7 November 2007 by Sue and Max Hoppe, collectively known on the blog as SAM.  For them it was a labour of love to the city and many current and ex-Port…


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas

I want to take this opportunity to wish all my Christian friends, family and Port Elizabeth Daily Photo followers a MERRY CHRISTMAS.  May this day be a special one full of love, happiness and lots of blessings. The Christmas tree in the picture was photographed in the Boardwalk Hotel lobby.


Goodbye 2014 – watch out 2015, here I come

Is it just me or did 2014 fly past at the speed of light. A year ago I had no idea what this year had in store for me and now, 12 months later I look back at a year of many highs but it also a couple of real lows, specially at the end.  There is always more one would like to have been able to do, but 2014 has laid the foundation for 2015 to be an even more…


Merry Christmas to you all

I'm sure by now everybody has sent out Christmas wished to all their friends, family and followers.  So even though I'm probably a little behind everybody else, it's still Christmas so here goes.  I would like to wish all the regular and faithful Christian followers of The Firefly Photo Files as well as those who stumble on the site from Google, social media links and shared posts, A MERRY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS.  I hope you all had a wonderful day…

Father Christmas is coming tonight

Its Christmas Eve and all the children are excited, for Father Christmas comes tonight.  But when will he come and where is he now?  Check out Google's Santa Tracker, the best way to keep tabs on the big guy.  I caught him in the Christmas Shop here in Port Elizabeth before his journey started.
