A trip to the V&A waterfront is not complete without a trip on the Cape Wheel. The ferris wheel was installed in 2010 as a temporary attraction for the 2010 football world cup. 19 years on and it’s still in use.
A trip takes about 40 minutes, and you have a fantastic view of the harbour, the city and the mountain. An excellent way to relax in the often busy V&A. More details are on their website
We were on the beach for a wedding celebration with some friends, and I caught that shot of the two fishermen as the sun set into the sea.
A pink baby elephant tries to escape, but is still caught by mom just before she manages her getaway.
This lighthouse is in the middle of the downtown area in Cape Town. I love the way it appears to be growing in soil held out by somebody’s hand. A clever use of a blank wall.
It’s not often that I get around to taking photos in my home town. I’ve been to Kalk Bay Harbour so many times, but its not often that I take pics of it. Well the other day I was having lunch at the harbour and it was a beautiful and wind-free day, so I took the opportunity for a quick photo. The fishing boats still go out every day, and you can still buy fresh fish from the harbour. And yes, Kalkies is still the best place in Cape Town for fish & chips.
