A Day at Kalk Bay Harbour – Flickr pic of the day
Stephen says, “This was taken on December 31, 2010 on the walkway above Kalk Bay Harbour. I have lived in and around Kalk Bay for most of my life and consider it to be one of the most vibrant, culturally diverse places in the city. Every year between late December and early January, partygoers from all over Cape Town descend on the town.
“For me, the best street photographs are candid. By the time you’ve asked for a photo, the decisive moment has passed. On the day in question, I was taking a photo of something else when these two men saw my camera. They insisted that I take their photo, which I then did merely as a courtesy. When I had it developed, however, I was very happy with how it turned out.”
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
