We came across a small ferris wheel in a small open-air shopping centre in the small northern suburb of Eversdal. The courtyard was deserted.
I managed to take a few shots before the appearance of a rather unconvincing security guard, warning me that photos were not permitted. I considered snapping one of him - but figured that that would be just rude. I asked him why photos were not allowed, but alas, this he could not answer.
I was tempted to get annoyed with him, but then sense prevailed. He knew no more than I and was simply doing what his boss had told him to do. I smiled and we parted ways.
I don't think the northern suburbs of Cape Town are very accustomed to tourists. I can only imagine a tour bus stopping at the centre one day. Click, click-click, click. :D
