Ode to Cape Town in pics – a bumpy start

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.” Buddha 
There you have it then, who is going to argue with that?
As I mentioned in the previous blog; last week was beautiful, the sun shining, the birds chirping, the mountain showing. My plan was and is to take a few humble photos to boast about Cape Town and how our winter looks like a beautiful spring day. I soon discovered that the Gods were against me, the day following the post the weather took a mean turn (some would say), winter in all its glory descended upon us (it was about time too). Since the rain and cloud appeared, the mountain disappeared or perhaps hid? behind the clouds, beautiful yes, but also invisible. Not only did this little set back interfere with my pictures (or what I had in mind) but my lack of photographic skills while driving and apparently walking have given my pics that abstract arty kind of look (please keep an open mind and remember it is easy to judge.) 
I am nonetheless going to post these jewels of fine artistry so you can all have a good laugh. But if I do say so myself, even though my pictures don’t do it justice, Cape Town is even more enticing and magical when overcast and rainy. But I’ll let you be the judge of that. Go well my friends; sunnier days are on their way!
