The frothy ocean, fynbos, beautiful mountains, colourful houses and laughter – these are some of the popular photographic topics in the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group, which now has more than 300 members who have posted over 4 000 high-quality images taken in and around Cape Town.
The top five contributors to the group so far have been mallix, Mervyn Hector, rfataar, paulperton and Axel Bührmann. The most common tags in the group are capetown, followed by southafrica, africa, cape, and westerncape.
Each day, we select one photo from the group as our Flickr Pic of the Day, which we showcase in the photography category of our blog. On Fridays, we also run a photo essay featuring the work of one of the photographers who have joined the Flickr group.
We’d love you to join our Flickr community. Please join the group and add your Cape Town images, or apply to be an admin in the group by contacting one of the other admins of the group directly via Flickr.
