H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, Week 7: a tablecloth in Cape Town

Hey everyone! I hope you’re finishing up an outstanding week. This week’s featured image comes from Cape Town, South Africa. When a cloud rolls in over iconic Table Mountain, locals call the effect a “tablecloth.” Here, you can see such a phenomenon in action.

The view here is looking towards Table Mountain from the Victoria & Albert Waterfront. The Lego-like sculpture of a man in the right foreground is made entirely of Coca-Cola crates; entitled “Crate Fan,” it was built for the World Cup in 2010 and is still there. The artist who created it is Porky Hefer (I swear, I’m not making that up, that’s really his name).

This photo was taken during my visit to South Africa in September 2011.

    • @Pola: Yeah, Cape Town is right up there with Rio de Janeiro for that type of amazing natural setting. Hong Kong also, with the Peak. I’m glad you like this photo!
