Roped in – Flickr pic of the day


This unusual image of a ship docked at Cape Town was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Sivan Miller aka mR.bLind43.

Sivan says, “I went walking around the waterfront and I saw this massive army ship just pulled in to dock. It was an incredible sight!”

Situated in the heart of the Mother City’s working harbour and set against the spectacular backdrop of Table Mountain, the V&A Waterfront is a hub of varied activity and a Cape Town must-see.

For those in search of local culture and history, there are a number of museums and galleries that form part of the precinct. One of them is the Maritime Centre in the Union Castle Building, which features a collection of ship models and objects associated with shipping in Cape Town, in particular the era of mail ships.

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!
