This photo was a surprise when I saw it – from the family group posing with their hands in the air on the left, to the couple walking on the right. I love this photo because of these unexpected elements. With the beauty of the Cape Peninsula in between.
How to capture the beauty of the Franschoek Valley? It’s got to be seen to be believed – I hope this panorama captures just some of it.
Taken with panorama function of the standard camera of the iPhone.
Our place is just around the corner from what used to be a convent 300 or 400 or so years ago.
As convents are wont to be it was right across a cobbled lane from a church. There is a bridge linking the two buildings. It is rumoured that the priests secretly used the bridge at night to visit the nuns.
Both buildings are now apartments with art galleries on the ground floor and the area is quite a trendy one.
I simply adore the secret histories and stories of ancient cities. It is the stuff of historical novels.
Now we have soapies and Fifty Shades of Grey…
