#abfav_holidays_theme Bo Kaap, The Cape Malay Quarter Hidden in central Cape Town, just beyond all the hustle and bustle of the town, you will find this little treasure. What is Bo-Kaap? It is a multicultural area, tucked safely into the fold of signal hill. Known for its brightly coloured houses and situated at the foot of Signal Hill, Bo-Kaap is the spiritual home of the Cape’s Muslim community. The Bo-Kaap is one of Cape Town’s most colourful suburbs. Bo-Kaap has a fascinating history. Many of the residents are descendants of slaves from Malaysia, Indonesia and various African countries, who were imported to the Cape of Good Hope by the Dutch during the 16th and 17th centuries. The slaves were known as ‘Cape Malays’ (which is not essentially true as most of the residents are not entirely of Malaysian descent). However the term has stuck and Bo-Kaap is also known today as the Cape Malay Quarter.

PHENOMENALLY UNIQUE CAPE TOWN ...

#abfav_holidays_theme Table Mountain has its own cloud cover (the Tablecloth), forming rapidly when the wind is in the southeast and is mainly responsible for the lush plateau vegetation. Table Mountain’s ‘tablecloth’ is an orographic cloud formation (clouds that develop in response to the forced lifting of air by the earth’s topography). As a south-easterly wind blowing up the mountain slopes meets colder air at higher altitude, condensation takes place and a thick mist soon coats the top-most regions of the mountain. As the cloud cover pours over the side of the mountain, the process is reversed. Clouds encounter warmer air layers lower down, where the moisture evaporates, making the clouds disappear. Despite its undeniable beauty, the tablecloth can be dangerous to unwary hikers. The cloud often descends rapidly, obscuring visibility and posing a threat to hikers unfamiliar with the mountain. This is a view taken from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the historic heart of Cape Town's working harbour and South Africa's most-visited destination, having the highest rate of foreign tourists of any attraction in the country. Prince Alfred, second son of Queen Victoria, began construction of the harbour in 1860. The first basin was named after himself, the second after his mother, hence the name. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront development is a renewal project that incorporates much of the historic harbour infrastructure.

#ABFAV_FAVOURITE_STREET_ACTIVITY_THEME THE PEOPLE OF CAPE TOWN 1... It was our first 'proper' day and we decided to go and explore the center of the city. It was a mild day, the sun was out, yes, 'another beautiful day in paradise' we joked. Wandering and admiring everything, I noticed how colourful it was, and also the people, oh dear... how pale we looked! On Greenmarket Square, you had all the stalls, with all the arty stuff, we both noticed how creative the local artists are, often with minimum resources. You do have those that beg and then you have those that will do ANYTHING to make a living. More about that later! I find 'strolling' very tiring, so we found ourselves a place for some refreshments and a 'break',lol, the cameras never far away and started 'people-watching'. I caught this, does it get any more 'traditional'? A mother and child, African style, no wonder they often have a tight bond later in life.

On Greenmarket Square, you had all the stalls, with all the arty stuff, we both noticed how creative the local artists are, often with minimum resources. I noticed this little scene, the one guy 're-styling' a friends hair! Later as we are not really into souvenirs, we rather support local Artists and buy sometyhing worhtwhile. It turned out that the man with the funky hair-style paints oil on canvas, one of which we bought, his name is Peter Mukendi (see Paul's portrait of him here:500px.com/photo/19025703).

THE WEATHER OF CAPE TOWN 1...

OVERCAST... We arrive early in the morning after an overnight flight. Both far too excited to get much sleep, so it was a long trip, about 12 hrs. The captain had said that it was overcast! We picked up our hire car, which is a MUST, because it is vast and if you want to see places... Found our way out of the air-port and were on the road to Cape-Town. This was my first proper view of 'THE MOUNTAIN'! I could not believe my eyes, I'd seen many images, movies of it, bu you really only get the 'sense' of it when you are confronted with it! The clouds were enveloping, caressing it, and already there was some blue coming in, very promising! It is not the most exciting photo, but important to us. An emotional moment, Paul had not been back for over 24 years! He left during Apartheid. He had missed his 'mountain', he was born right in the center of Cape Town, a REAL CAPETONIAN!

THE WEATHER OF CAPE TOWN 2...

BLUE SKIES. After a brief 'power-nap', we go onto the terrace of our apartment and are greeted by this view. The sun has burned all the clouds away. It is sunny and warm, Spring in the Cape! We are just outside Cape Town, Milnerton, where Paul grew up, this is his beach, the bay, the entrance to the Laguna, all so familiar to him, but after all these years, of course things have changed, so it is also a voyage of re-discovery. Further along is Table-view and Blouberg. Around the corner, visible from the beach is Table Mountain and the city.

THE WEATHER OF CAPE TOWN 8...

A PASTEL SKY. The sun goes down, behind Table Mountain, Lion's head... there is an after-glow that lights up the sky and paints it in the most gorgeous soft colours! As I noticed, so often in the evening the wind is off-shore, it gives the incoming waves a veil fit for a bride, I know locally they call them 'horses', and I can see why. Like most evenings, Paul is on the beach catching the sunset view HERE The end of another beautiful day.

I grew up by and with the sea and NEVER underestimate it! This here is still the Atlantic Ocean. "Cape of Good Hope" named thus because of the great optimism engendered by the opening of a sea route to India and the East. I wish you all a very good day and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.

THE WEATHER OF CAPE TOWN 5...

LIGHT-STORM at SEA! One evening, we came back, it had been another lovely, warm and sunny day. We'd been on the flank of Table Mountain, about halfway overlooking the city, towards the end, we heard the echoes of the rumble reverberating, rain coming in above the Atlantic. Sitting on the terrace, it developed into a full-blown thunderstorm, far away still but coming in, loud and spectacular. I did not have my tripod, so it was a matter of 'go for it'! And after a few misses, I got this hit... I was awesome, ominous and beautiful all at the same time, there was fork lightning and sheet lightning. As you can see there are ALWAYS huge boats waiting in the bay, sometimes for days, I wondered how it was for the people on board, daily life? LOL. It was still dry where we were. That was not to last...

PURE NATURAL POWER! One evening, we came back, it had been another lovely, warm and sunny day. We'd been on the flank of Table Mountain, about halfway overlooking the city, towards the end, we heard the echoes of the rumble reverberating, rain coming in above the Atlantic. Sitting on the terrace, it developed into a full-blown thunderstorm, far away still but coming in, loud and spectacular. I did not have my tripod, so it was a matter of 'go for it'! And after a few misses, I got this hit... I was awesome, ominous and beautiful all at the same time, there was fork lightning and sheet lightning. As you can see there are ALWAYS huge boats , suddenly, because of the rain like a ghost-ship, sometimes waiting in the bay for days, I wondered how it was for the people on board, daily life? LOL. It was still dry where we were. That was not to last...

THE WEATHER OF CAPE TOWN 7...

PHENOMENALLY UNIQUE! Table Mountain has its own cloud cover (the Tablecloth), forming rapidly when the wind is in the southeast and is mainly responsible for the lush plateau vegetation. Albeit marvellous, the truth is less fantastical. Table Mountain’s “tablecloth” is nothing more than an orographic cloud formation (clouds that develop in response to the forced lifting of air by the earth’s topography). As a south-easterly wind blowing up the mountain slopes meets colder air at higher altitude, condensation takes place and a thick mist soon coats the top-most regions of the mountain. As the cloud cover pours over the side of the mountain, the process is reversed. Clouds encounter warmer air layers lower down, where the moisture evaporates, making the clouds disappear. Despite its undeniable beauty, the tablecloth can be dangerous to unwary hikers. The cloud often descends rapidly, obscuring visibility and posing a threat to hikers unfamiliar with the mountain. This is a view taken from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the historic heart of Cape Town's working harbour and South Africa's most-visited destination, having the highest rate of foreign tourists of any attraction in the country. Prince Alfred, second son of Queen Victoria, began construction of the harbour in 1860. The first basin was named after himself, the second after his mother, hence the name. The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront development is a renewal project that incorporates much of the historic harbour infrastructure.

At one of the basins of the V&A Waterfront, you'll find pilot boats, working boats, there are pleasure boats that will take you around the harbour, pirate-ships for fun, speed-boats for squealing, sailing boats for the wind-lovers... many of the boats are decorated in the so creative African motives and colours! They are also safety conscious!

So Paul is a genuine Capetonian, born in the center, close to The Gardens, obviously that was a priority on the list of MUST see. The National Gallery is right there, you can see THE MOUNTAIN in the back, it is amazing how it pops up in so many images! Growing up, already very creative, drawing and painting, he was of course interested in the Arts and spent a lot of time admiring what was on offer. To the people of South Africa, Europe is the Mekka for Art, with all the beautiful musea and Galleries... however, it is very far, something most dream of. The South African National Gallery is the national art gallery of South Africa located in Cape Town. Its collection consists largely of Dutch, French and British works from the 17th to the 19th century. This includes lithographs, etchings and some early 20th century British paintings. Contemporary art work displayed in the gallery is selected from many of South Africa's communities and the gallery houses an authoritative collection of sculpture and bead-work. It had changed a little, also now you had to pay, where before it was free. Paul just had a peep inside for old time sake. The weather was too lovely, so we roamed the Gardens and enjoyed the mellow mood on that Sunday afternoon, later under the exotic trees having our tea!

A detail on the outside of The National Gallery, with decoration that is so very typical of the area, looks like some kind of an outside alcove!

This is Paul, my dear husband. He is a genuine Capetonian, born in the center of town, close to The Gardens. He grew up there. He left country and family over 24 years ago, a photo-journalist, under Apartheid, he was in grave danger and HAD to leave to save his life. He was pleasantly surprised to see how his country had made the transition! Perfect? No, but then is it anywhere??? Under the circumstances it seems fine. It was time to go 'home', emotional moments, he had missed 'his' Mountain, so, I photographed him, on the flank of Table Mountain, with behind him the town, the harbour, the bay, Blouberg and Table-View in the distance...

Every w-e there is a famous Flea-Market, we decided to check it out, often good for some interesting photography. There is, like everywhere else, poverty... I was surprised to see that so many white people had bits and bobs stalled out, it was a great mix of stuff, different! It was crowded, well attended. This gent was selling (new) handbags and was quite intend on selling me one! As a photographer, I love to have my hands free? I told him, but, no, he came up with all kinds of ideas, lol. As you can see, the people of Cape-Town are very proud of their city, we are used that it is tourist who wear the 'I Love...' In Cape-Town you will see many locals, wearing caps, T-shirts, bags with the flag and the name! Now even though I did not buy, he allowed me to take his portrait and gave me this lovely smile.

We drove a bit up North, came to a place called Table View, one can imagine why... wow, to stand on that beach! Paul had been there often in his youth, a keen surfer, he was always following and trying to catch the 'good' waves. This was a place that he knew so well, and to his amazement 'his' ice cream parlour was still there... some things never change? Cause for celebration! Another fun encounter.

On our way to The Cape of Good Hope, we passed Constantia, a famous wine farm on the slopes of Table Mountain. Obviously a very tourist-attractive place, interesting, yes, we had a brief look, a few photos and then off again... One wrong turn and we ended up on the wrong road, going North instead of South. It happens, no sat-nav! We soon realised it, however yo get back on track, we drove through The Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, and at a cross road in Claremont I saw this lady, 'transporting' potatoes... LOL! African style!

That makes the light so amazing, hardly any shadow until later in the afternoong and evening when the sun drops.... fast...

I do not photograph people that are down and out, I am not a 'journalistic' photographer. And, like I said already, there is poverty in South Africa amongst the population, so, it would have been so easy, you drive past shanty towns... We got to Houtbaai, a lovely small fishing-harbour, colourful boats, superb bay, this is our turf! It was the hottest day, 30 degrees, a nice breeze, we'd seen the building where they sold the fish, and seeing this lady in there with the Santa hat, it made me smile. We looked for a shaded terrace and had an ice cream, I saw her again, coming towards us... I picked up my camera and took the photo. Only when I came home did I see... she had, like so many, picked up a cigarette but... inspected it, hoping there was still some left for her... And she was probably wearing the hat, because that was all she had? No, Christmas is NOT Merry and bright for everybody... I am interrupting the images from The Cape for now, more in the new year!
