Drip, drip drip, drip drip drip...

Over the last few days I've been posting photos from the Worldwide Photo Walk that I attended on Saturday. Even though Cape Town was at her best on Saturday, and there are plenty more photos that I'd like to draw your attention to, this will be the last one that I'll publish as a blog entry. I have however uploaded the rest of the morning's photos to our "Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk - 2009" album. Please indulge me and take a look through the album - the city really was very photogenic on Saturday morning.

On a side note, although we had perfect weather on Saturday, I found this gutter downpipe dripping really fast, almost as though it were raining... which makes publishing this photo today co-incidental since this week we've had our fair share of rain! Perhaps the dripping was prophetic in some or other way? :)

    Couldn’t agree more gabor, this is one of those photos I wish I had taken – it is so effective to have a close up but with the background in focus. Can’t miss out on commenting about the drip drip though – from the middle of summer in the UK where its not possible to go day without rain at the moment! Infuriating.

    Thanks gabor – it’s particularly those kind of shots I try and look for. Something slightly different.

    Pamela, yes, that’s exactly it. One would expect the foreground to be in focus, but the rain dripping creates a cool effect when out of focus. You should really consider visiting Cape Town some time… it’s not as rainy in Winter as people make it out to be. :)

    mjw – ta, I just wish that the old man one the left was just one step further away (or that I had held the camera just 5mm lower!). I do like it also though!

    I usually have a look at a webcam from Milnerton that has a fab view of Table Mountain – and your weather is almost always better than hours even though its summer over here. As for visiting – we still want to come over in the SA winter sometime (I have an addiction to macro flower shots and would love to catch peak protea time) but the next trip is in precisely 126 days! Not that I am counting! This will be the fourth trip we have taken, my husband lived over there for 10 years and now I love it too. Carols in Kirstenbosch – can’t wait!
