Which way to the beach?
Which way to the beach?
When I first decided to take part in the Daily Post Shadow photo challenge I thought any pictures I used would have to be limited to those taken either early in the morning or late in the afternoon, when shadows are long and dramatic.
Then I came across this picture I took of these little guys, soaking up the mid-day sun on Boulders Beach in Cape Town.
Last year I was invited to write a small story about Walking With Rhinos in a local publication.
Although the walk I was on sets off early in the morning, I was lucky it was mid winter – by 07.00am it was already pretty hot.
Now back to Cape Town, where wedding guests play a genteel game of croquet while waiting for the bride and groom to appear after family photographs
Walking back to the car one evening, after an extended Sunday lunch at The Brass Bell, we came across a micro pig playing with a dog in a children’s play ground.
Happy, hot dogs take respite from the glaring sun.
Our shadows briefly rest on the Zimbabwe bank of the Zambezi River, a fleeting reminder that this used to be home.

My Dad wrestling with a crocodile – not something you see every day.
These penguins look very much alike, but there are two of them and they do look very cute.
As do these adorable young vervet monkeys.

We recently spent a (very short) week in Cape Town. Tucked away in a side street in Muizenberg we found Oroboros Tapas Bar and after one visit it became our ‘local’.
Most evenings we would sit at a table on the pavement, testing every brand of craft beer on the menu and watching the World go by.
I love that Muizenberg is a dog-friendly place and at most places you go to you will see people walking around with their four-legged friends, some even stopping by in a restaurant or cafe for a bite to eat and a drink.

What better subject for Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Open Topic than the famous Boulders Beach Penguins.
Join me in the cold, dark, life-sustaining NE Pacific Ocean to discover the great beauty, mystery and fragility hidden there.
