Flower of the day Challenge – 22 June 2020

My flower of the day is Garden Nasturtium of as we know it Kappertjies. Today my mother would have been 74 years old. Since I can remember she loved these beautiful flowers.

Our garden by the pool was full of them and in different colors. When Mom and dad moved here the first flower she planted was Nasturtiums….

Exploring Cape Town: Bo Kaap

It took me a few years of promising myself that I am going to explore the Bo Kaap in Cape Town. At long last I was able to do it in May 2019.

We spend about an hour walking around and I took some photo’s. I must say it was very busy and you had to keep a eye on the traffic too.

We visited Atlas the spice shop on Waal Street.

I would like to go to the Bo Kaap again early morning when it is not so busy so that I can take some more photos of the colorful historical buildings. I also think we missed a few streets and hidden gems…

So photographing the Bo Kaap is back on my Photography Bucket List….

Here is some interesting facts of the Bo Kaap that I got from the internet…. For more information please visit Cape Town Travel

The earliest development in the Bo Kaap area was undertaken in the 1760s by Jan de Waal. Subsequently, the area became known as Waalendorp. It has also been known as the Malay Quarter, the Slamse Buurt, and Scotcheskloof. Translated from Afrikaans, Bo Kaap means ‘Above the Cape’.
Part of the Bo Kaap’s charm is the mix of Cape Dutch and Cape Georgian architectural styles. You can actually visit one of the oldest buildings in the Bo Kaap because it has been turned into a museum. The Bo Kaap Museum, which showcases local Islamic culture and heritage, was built by Jan de Waal in 1768, and is the oldest house in the area still in its original form.

Random photos of a March Lily

Hi everyone,

Just some photo’s I took of the March Lilies in our garden when it bloomed in March 2019. I took it over a period of two weeks.

This year it was beautiful and kept blooming for a while. Looking forward to see them again in 2020….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Round and Round it goes to nowhere…

While walking I spotted this piece of seabamboo on the beach. I saw a great photo in my mindseye but when the waves came it looked 100 better than I imagined.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you aren’t too dizzy…

Things we found on the beach…

While walking on the beach we came across a few things that caught my attention. I love stones and there was a few beautiful ones to be found.

We also found some strange stuff that don’t belong on the beach….

We also came across a few Bluebottles and jellyfish

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you enjoyed discovering beautiful and strange things with me on the beach.
