Colourful Houses in Cape Town

DSC_3020.jpg

A row of colourful houses in Cape Town, in the Bo-Kaap, the Malay quarter.

It took me a few visits at different times of the day to find the right light and shadows. this was taken around midday, with the minimal shadows and bright light falling overhead and bouncing off the walls on the other side of the street, like a reflector.

The bright colours and the compressed perspective of a long focal range give the view an abstract look. Almost like Lego bricks.
