  1. Three very different shots with their own character. I love the last one specially. Can’t stop imagining how many different lives are being lived at the same time in such a place.

  2. The second one is my favorite, how did you get such a shining old car in front of that background? did you ask him to park there? Great shots. What was the shutter speed on the night shot?

    1. we were sitting at a restaurant opposite and halfway through our meal the car drove up and parked… so I took a photo. The night shot, i have no idea the exposure, but it was handheld, so no longer than 15th of a second, i guess. dont remember, sorry. thanks for commenting!

  14. Pretty much all I know of Cape Town is what I saw during the World Cup last summer. Seeing you’re night view photo with the ocean is the background, as now put it on my list of places I want to see.

  23. Hi Kerry –

    I love the shot in the early evening from Signal Hill. Beautiful to say the least. I remember flying over Istanbul late on a Friday evening at around 30,000 feet on route to Hong Kong. It was a breath-taking sight to see. The lights from the city climbed up the side of the base of a hill, or maybe mountain, not really sure. Your photo reminded of that image which is clearly still lodged in my head. Thank you for that. Have a nice Monday. 🙂

  39. Beautiful photos. And you’re right, Cape Town is a must, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Tough to take a bad picture of the place. I am still in awe of the pictures I took from of and from Table Mountain, even if I took them with the oldest digital camera known to man.
