Who Wouldn’t Want to Go on this Ride?

Day Seven – Big and Point of View

Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront is a magical place at any time of the year. Last year the Christmas decorations and fun rides went up in October.

This is one of my all time favourite pics, not only because of the time of year, but the PoV is one I love playing with.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime – In the Harbour

I do not like taking photos in low-light situations because it takes skill (which I do not yet have) and often have to fall back to flash (which I do not like). So I do not often venture into Nighttime photography.

One exception is where there is a lot of ambient or reflected light around, as was the case with the photos for this week’s challenge. Cape Town is one of my favourite places on earth and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront provides many opportunities for photography.

The V&A Waterfront is a working harbour, as well as being a huge entertainment, lifestyle and residential space thus making it one of the city’s major tourist attractions. Apartments go for many millions of rands.

These photos show all of these dimensions, the lit up residential units providing a domestic backdrop to the huge cranes and ships. There is lots of reflected light providing pockets of yellowish glow to the whole scene.
