Reflecting

Kalk Bay is a fishing village on the False Bay Coastline near Cape Town. The Harbour founded in the early 1900’s is one of the few remaining working fishing harbours in the Cape Peninsula. Colourful Fishing boats and calmer water in the Harbour provided the perfect palette for images of reflections.

Reflecting






Abstract

Like liquid Grafitti, colourful reflections from Fishing boats docked at Kalk Bay Harbour dance on the surface of the water. Influenced by tidal movement or passing boats the reflections transform the water surface into a continuous array of colourful patterns, of varying shapes sizes. Abstract is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and abstract images of the reflections are my response to the prompt.

Vibrance

Reflections of the Vibrant colours of moored Fishing Trawlers at Hout Bay Harbour, appear to blend themselves into the ripples of the water. The weekly photo challenge prompt for this week is Vibrant, “to keep the winter gloom at Bay”. The bright sunny days in the Southern Hemisphere, certainly added another dimension to these vibrant reflections.

With its 5 seaside villages each with colourful houses and ancient vineyards clinging on to steep terraces, and overlooking quaint harbours with colourful fishing boats Cinque Terre in Italy is indeed a Tourist hotspot in Summer. Surprisingly, this colourful atmosphere is not lost in the cold and wet winter months.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Broken

Anadolu Kavagi is a cute little Seaside Village on the Asian side of Turkey, located at the end of the Bosphorus river as it enters the Black Sea. Easily reached by road over the bridge across the Bosphorus from Istanbul, and along a winding coastal road through similar little harbour villages. Alternately it can be reached by taking an inexpensive ferry from Istanbul which cris crosses between harbour villages on the European and Asian Continents until the turn around point at Anadolu Kavagi. On a recent visit by Ferry, I opted to travel back by bus on the Asian side. While waiting for the next bus to arrive, I wandered around the village, and stumbled upon a house which had an external wall that was decorated with a variety of broken ceramic objects, ranging from tiles, to cups, saucers plates etc. Some of these broken pieces had dislodged, leaving an obvious indentation in the plaster. Broken is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the broken objects in the wall are my response to the prompt…………………

Weekly Photo Challenge : Zig Zag

Hiking routes connecting the Villages of the Cinque Terra in Italy, zigzag their way across the Countryside, through valleys and ridges, through terraced planting areas and alongside flowing mountain streams. These routes become more formalised when they reach the Villages, yet still zigzag their way through the colourful buildings. Zigzag happens to be the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images along the route and wiythin the village are my response to the prompt..
