Kalk Bay Harbour in winter – flickr pic of the day
"The last real camera I owned was way back in the 70s. Since then I've only really taken the occasional snap with a cell phone. In June I decided to buy a Nikon P510 and was surprised at how sophisticated the compact cameras of today are.
"At one of the first opportunities I got I trundled off to Kalk Bay, on a cold winter's day, to test it out shooting everything in sight. Looking around I was struck by how odd it was to see a train travelling above the boats, how the colours contrasted and the juxtaposition of the modern and old way of life formed a fascinating subject. Framing the shot I snapped and this picture was the result.
"I wonder how many places in the world one would be able to frame such a picture?"
