South Africa – Colours of Life in Cape Town

This is the last part of the whole series that on my South Africa trip in 2005. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my pics.

Life on a street close to the sunset hour.

Link-houses at the Bo Kaap Malay Quarter where most of the Malay people live. I was told by a Malay taxi driver that his ancestor was from either Malaysia or Indonesia.

A church at a junction.

One of the public buildings at the Company's Garden.

Another public building around the Company's Garden.

A church near the Green Market Square.

A batik seller at the Green Market Square.

Do all these batik paintings look familiar to you?

These are batik cloths with South African motifs.

If you do not fancy batik, how about some African masks for you?

Or maybe you wanna have a drum or two?

A very nicely painted Mini!

Do you need a Red Bull after long hours?

Time to have a Czech beer!

The Clock Tower at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront at night.

The wharfs at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront were converted into bars and restaurants.

A dry-dock which is still in operation at the V&A Waterfront.

Have you see a guitar made from engine oil tin?

Jazzing the hours away.

A glass roof of the Convention Centre of University of Cape Town.

One of the office buildings in the main campus of the University of Cape Town.

One of the stained glass panels inside Smuts Hall of the University of Cape Town.

Sun rays breaking through the thick clouds on one morning.

What a feast of color, light, and life, CK. I love the vibrant earth tones in the first shot, the sky colors of the home, and the life in all of these!
