Big city lights – Flickr pic of the day


This striking photograph of the Cape Town city centre was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Daniel Lurie.

Daniel says, “I have many personal favourite images of Cape Town, but this one of the city at night has a particular majestic quality.

“It was taken at a photo outing on the unfinished bridge. Before I invested in a DSLR (digital single lens reflex), I used an ultra compact camera, balancing on the edge with the self-timer on.

“I took a lot of photos that night, but this was one of the awesome ones.

“I love taking photos in Cape Town; it is such a photogenic place with such raw beauty and so many diverse scenes of people and places, not to mention the sunsets!

“I have been taking photos for over 20 years, learning the theory of composition and f-stops from my dad, reading numerous hobby books and learning through trial and error.

“Digital photography has certainly opened new doors for experimentation,” he adds.

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!
