  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!

      1. I took pics from the exact same spot a few days ago!! Cape town is awesome!! http://wp.me/pWQje-4e

  9. As a Capetonian now living in Beijing, your lovely photos made me feel really homesick.
    Please post more!

    1. theres a bit more of Cape Town here, just have a look under the “South Africa” tag. 🙂

  10. I love the first shot, It was very subliminal, perhaps they’re father and son.

    1. its actually me and my nephew, but could be mother and son maybe, don’t tell me my feet look like a mans!! 🙂

  11. Amazing, especially the night view of CapeTown:)

  12. Cute mirror shot. 🙂

  13. absolutely LOVED it !!

  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.

    Beautiful pictures. The evening shot is particularly lovely!

  20. Those are wonderful. I love the composition, especially in the first. And the old car and colors in the second are very cool. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed.

  21. Really cool shots, I just love the nighttime one. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Beautiful. I love the child’s red shoes framed in the mirror in the first shot.

  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. 🙂

  26. What a cool place – I’ve always wanted to visit! Hopefully I’ll get to go there one day!

  27. I love the night view of Cape Town and how you have caught the moon in the image.

  28. Wow! Nice shots! Somehow, I did not imagine Cape Town to look like…. well, England…lol!!! (except for the last shot that is).

  29. wow! so awesome to read all these comments! thanks so much for all your feedback, for those of you who haven’t yet visited Cape Town, you must definitely go, its the most amazing place. xx

  30. The third picture looks like a technological volcano has gone off spewing techno lava through the towns streets. Love it. From this amateur photographer – well done and thank you for sharing!

  31. […] days! A bit of random Cape Town was Freshly Pressed today, featured on the front page of wordpress.com, which is pretty exciting […]

  32. Wow, nice scene!

  33. The first one is my favorite.

  34. Great photos, what kind of camera do you use?

  35. I love your style of photography!

  36. great photography! thanks for sharing!

  37. I have to agree with the person who now lives in Beijing – I’m also a Capetonian and very homesick at that! You portray my home town very beautifully – thank you!

    1. I’m currently living in Portugal, so i know how you feel… no place like home!

    Lovely combination of interesting varied pictures from a great place to visit.

  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.

    1. your photos are great, and i’m glad you had a good time!

  40. merediiith

    i love the vintage look of the frames in the first photo.

  41. Definitely a woman’s feet! Nice car shot and a beautiful moon rise! Congrats on being FP!

  42. If I ever have to return to South Africa, I’m definitely going to stay in Cape Town.

    That’s how persuasive your photography is…

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  43. Nice photos! Like your perspective, and love the full moon rising!

  49. I love the last photo! 🙂 Keep it up!

  50. Nice photos! I particularly like the top two…. a neat perspective in the first one with people’s feet seen in mirrors. And the second one has a cool look to it… soft colors of the buildings contrasting with the black car, and the lines of the windows, tree, and car. Thanks for posting these!
