Sunlit urban Cape Town – Flickr pic of the day


This photo of a sunlit urban scene was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member JD van Zyl aka JD©.

JD says, “This image was taken in Walmer Estate near Woodstock, just before the last light disappeared from the City Bowl.

“I was just strolling about the area, looking for some nice shots, and really liked the way the diagonal shadow line on the building linked to the silhouette of Lion’s Head. Afterwards I played around with Photoshop to create a slightly cross-processed effect,” he continues.

Woodstock, one of Cape Town’s oldest suburbs, is located in the City Bowl and within easy access of the central business district.

The colourful and vibrant suburb, with its Victorian semi-detached houses, has recently been named one of the city’s improvement districts. Companies are encouraged to set up shop here to boost both the commercial and residential property markets, ensuring that Woodstock is always buzzing with activity.

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!
