Exploring Cape Town through Photography
I recently took to the streets of my wonderful city with my camera and tripod in hand. I am currently in my final week of a photography course with the wonderful Martin Osner, and my assignment from last week was night photography. I was most excited about this, as it has always been one of my dreams to capture the night sky through my camera lens. Now of course I wasn't able to take a road trip up to the Karoo, where the air is perfect for capturing the stars and milky way, but I did do a miniature trip to some of my favourite Cape Town spots.
Kirstenbosch was probably my favourite place - table mountain was so beautifully lit up from the city lights, and it left the sky with the most exquisite magenta hue.
My favourite shot of the reflective artwork on Rhodes Drive, as part of the endemic sound project. This is a project that has put up over a dozen pieces of artwork around different animals and plants found in the Western Cape. It has transformed Rhodes Drive into a living piece of artwork when you are driving home at night along it. It has always been a special sight for me, and so I am incredibly happy to have been able to capture these very cool fish.
So if ever you find yourself in Cape Town at night, I would definitely take a drive past these innovative artworks.
