Cape Town by night

Cape Town by night

Lately, I have been attracted to night lights, I was down in the fair city of Cape Town and planned to shoot for the top of Signal Hill, which as this photo and the next 2 will profess, I did. This was not without some challenges. Little di I know it was going to be freezing up there, I had a jacket but nothing to cover my ears, this resulted in an unpleasant experience.
The results were worth it, though.

Offices Deserted

Offices Deserted

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer Russel Harris from my Blue collection.

Before 1Fox – The Sheds was hip and filled with good food there was just the derelict abandoned buildings of 14 Alexander Street.
Today, it has been recycled and houses a food market, a micro brewery and much more.

Sunday at the train station

Sunday at the train station

Randomly chosen by fellow UK photographer Kim Brown from my Blue collection.

Sunrises and sunset alike are funny things, one day they will be the most beautiful thing on earth, the next plain as can be.
On this day it was just a vaguely interesting sunrise behind a lot of clouds.

Beach drama at Cape Point

Beach drama at Cape Point

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer and Joburg Photowalker Palesa Diale from my Blue collection.

On the day this photo was shot the Cape of Storms lived up to it’s reputation.
It was stormy and cold but we braved it all and came away with the goods.

At the feet of a majestic school

At the feet of a majestic school

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer Cliff Featherstone from my Blue collection.

It’s 7:10 in the morning.
The sun has just risen.
The English flag is bartered in the wind.
It’s Sunday and the the question that I ask myself is: What am I doing back at school?
Obviously, I am doing the only thing I would be doing at a school at that unholy time in the morning, I am photographing it.
Welcome to St John’s College.

Ansteys Building Foyer

Ansteys Building Foyer

Randomly chosen by my mother Claire Parent from my Blue collection.

I restarted something I stopped doing about a year ago, asking people to randomly chose the next photos I will be posting.
This forces me to think each time I post a photo as they often are from different shoot and eras.
This one is from a photowalk back in January 2015, we covered central Johannesburg that day.
One of the buildings, Mark Straw managed to get access to was the Ansteys Building, finished in 1937 of an Art Deco style.
