Weekly Photo Challenge : Refraction

With not many more than 25000 residents Rheinbach is a small town 17km southwest of Bonn in Germany, despite its size, it has a reputation of being a “glass city” complete with a glass manufacturing technical school.

Glimpses of – Cape Town Colour Run 2014

Dubbed the “Happiest 5k on the Planet” Cape Town’s 2014 Colour run was held yesterday in perfect weather conditions. Founded as an event in January 2012, to “promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together” The event has seen phenomenal growth hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries. Cape Town’s start and Finish was alongside the Cape town Stadium leading participants along a scenic route which incorporated the Sea Point Promenade along the Atlantic Coastline.
