Quick Snapshots

My small Nikon pocket camera is always in my handbag - ready to snap quick shots which I file away on my computer in my "To inspire me" folder .  I live about 75kms away from Cape Town City Centre and never leave without my camera. Here are a few pictures which I took during my last visit or two:
Vertical garden advertisement by Emirates in Long Street, Cape Town

Love the colours in this picture - building in Long Street, Cape Town

I always stop and look up at the mural outside Mama Africa Restaurant, Long St, Cape Town

Not so glitzy as the name suggests...Glitterati in Harrington St , Cape Town

Colourful shop front of Charly's Bakery - a landmark building and MUST stop for to-die-for muffins and cakes

Beautiful shop display - 

Colourful entrance in Long St

My favourite coffee shop in the Eastern District - 'The Field Office' - I love the Pedersen & Lennard chairs.
In the background in this last photo is a large aerial photo of Cape Town with 2014 printed on it.  Cape Town is the World Design Capital for 2014 - I will be in Town then not only every second week, but most weeks!

  1. Love how all these colonial buildings have been overtaken in various ways by the local colour and design (and even plant life!)
