A fun day shooting some photos to celebrate the Engagement of Gerhard and Danica. We drove around town visiting Rhodes Memorial, Side Walk Cafe and the Bo-Kaap area. The Bo-Kaap, or Cape Malay Quarter as it is otherwise known, is a multicultural area filled with colourful houses and romantic cobble stone streets. We walked around, taking photos of graffiti on walls, old rundown houses and anything that looked remotely interesting. From there we hit the road to Bloubergstrand beach for some sunset shots and finished the day off with drinks at the local pub. A great day shared with new friends.
In summertime the sunsets are just amazing, glowing reds and oranges, a feast for the eye. Usually these perfect sunsets are few and far between for this little hidden gem of a village on the coast of Southern Africa. This evening was the exception, truly breathtaking. I met my friends Vania and Daniel for a casual photo session at the old harbour where yachts lie drifting in the evening sun. We hang around and chat, waiting for perfect light that will make the evening’s work truly memorable. Those perfect day’s end will surely be missed. Once the winter hits, we are left longing for those long summer nights spent at the water’s edge sipping shallow drinks and shrouding off the worst life can throw at us.
