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.

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.

Shadow

The 45m high Ponte Dom Luis (Bridge) in Porto, spanning across the Duoro River provides the perfect vantage point for an overview of the Ribeira District along the waters edge. With numerous Cafe’s and restaurants lining the riverside district, the area attracts tourists and locals alike. The low sun angle in the late afternoon creates larger than life shadows of people walking on the timber access ramp from the quayside to the road level. Shadow is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of these shadows are my response to the prompt.

Shine

Depending on their orientation, some of the Buildings on the Atlantic Seaboard, get a golden glow as the sun starts to set. Shining off the glazed facades of the higher, more visible buildings as well as the water, this glow is visible from far away.
Shine is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of Sunset and the reflection off the buildings are my response to the prompt.

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.

Change

Ever noticed how the Moon always appears a lot larger as it emerges above the horizon, it appears to become smaller as moves further above the horizon. This month’s supermoon is being described as the biggest, closest and brightest moon of this year, add to that the fact that there will be a total lunar eclipse tomorrow morning, resulting in a red moon, making it even more significant. Change is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of Moonrise this evening, from Signal Hill above Cape Town, are my response to the prompt.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Connected

As the sun starts heading towards the horizon, street lights on the larger roads leading into and out of Cape Town slowly become visible. From the top of Table Mountain, they appear like “illuminated” pearls on strands of a necklace, that appears to become longer as darkness slowly begins to take over. Before long numerous other smaller strands of  lights start becoming visible. The collection of these numerous strands  start transforming themselves into an illuminated necklace. At first glance the “necklace”  appears as an intricate, complicated array of lights, but on closer inspection, the pattern emerges,. Larger National and Regional roads stand out as they lead right into and out of the City, Suburban and District roads branch off these and this hierarchy keeps reducing until individual streets start becoming visible, like major strands that are connected to one another by this hierarchy of smaller strands. Images of this “illuminated necklace” are my response to the “Connected” prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week….
