Kalk Bay Harbour in winter – flickr pic of the day
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
"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?"
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!
