Awakening

A recent fire destroyed much of the vegetation on the slopes of a portion of Table Mountain. The route for the 2018 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Trail Runs traversed this area. I was out there shooting some images of the race and noticed the green shoots of the new vegetation emerging out of the charred landscape.

Dense

Covering an area 1700 hectares and encompassing 27 centuries of history within it, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Naples, is also one of the largest Historic Centres of Europe. Reputed to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the World, as well as the 9th most populous Urban areas in Europe. When viewed from the elevated position of Castel Sant”Elmo above the City, one gets an a better idea of just how dense this Historic Centre is.

Magic

I came across this busker while walking through one of Milan’s pedestrian only zones on a recent trip. Defying gravity while appearing to be completely still in a world that’s moving all around him, he attracted a lot of attention from passers by trying to work out how exactly he was able to be seated in that position without any apparent support. Any idea how he did that? :-):-) Magic is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the busker are my response to the Challenge…

Frame

Made out of stainless steel, approximately 60sq m in size, resembling the Ray Ban Wayfarers, looking out towards Robben Island, this pair of spectacles have been controversial since the day they were installed. Titled “perceiving freedom” this gigantic pair of “glassless” spectacles is a Public Art Installation on the Sea Point Promenade, in Cape Town.

Frame is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the “perceiving freedom” art installation on a rather grey and rainy day are my response to the prompt..

Fun

How boring would the World be without diversity. I had to remind myself of this while walking along the Sea Point Promenade, a wide paved promenade that winds its way along the Atlantic Coastline, with magnificient views of Table Mountain, Lions Head, Robben Island amongst many others. Frequented by Joggers, Cyclists, Walkers, Parents with children and strollers, Whale watchers, Ice cream sellers, Paragliders and others all just having fun and enjoying the space. Recently, they have been joined by another group, who, as it appears, are not interested in the beautiful environment, but rather the devices in their hands, Pokemon hunters!! The latest craze to arrive in Cape Town. Gathered in groups, some tethered to one another with multiple devices connected to a single powerbank, others isolated on their own, some comparing what was on their devices with one another, but I guess with one common goal, to catch as many Pokemons as possible. Perhaps not my idea of fun, yet this group of young and old people seemed to be having a great time, glued to their devices, while the rest of us, just enjoyed the beautiful environment we were in. Fun is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of these Pokemon hunters is response to the prompt

Fun!

Spare

Standing on the Terrace of Castel Sant Elmo, the medieval fortress on a hilltop overlooking the City of Naples feels a bit like standing over a life size jigsaw puzzle, with all its pieces intact. Everything fits so perfectly into place, in a myriad of colours, patterns and materials, with absolutely nothing to spare. You almost get the impression that just even adding another little building in somewhere will disturb this perfectly complete puzzle :-). Spare is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of this “puzzle” are my response to the prompt.

Half-Light

A time of Transition, between night and day, between darkness and daylight, between blues of the night and oranges of the morning, and the moments of half-light in between.
Half Light is the prompt on the Photo Challenge this week, and images of this transition prior to Sunrise at Muizenberg Beach are my response to the prompt……..
