H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, week 38: the view from Table Mountain in Cape Town

Happy November! Today is just another Friday as I count down to my departure for Peru and Panama, now less than three weeks away. I’m getting pretty excited about those impending additions to my World Karaoke Tour! I still have no idea what songs I’m going to perform in those countries; but I’m confident that my journey will feature some unforgettable nights of singing. Seeing Machu Picchu and the Panama Canal, among other sights, will be pretty awesome too.

It’s time for another photograph of the week that memorializes one of my favourite destinations from the past! Today’s featured image comes from Cape Town, South Africa. That city’s signature landmark is not man-made; it’s the natural wonder of Table Mountain. A flat-topped promontory overlooking the city, Table Mountain boasts breathtaking views from its approximately 3,500-foot elevation. Here’s one of them:

Cape Town view

In this view, you can see the rotating cylindrical cable car that ferries visitors to the summit. (You can also choose to hike up the mountain.) Visible in the background are the smaller peak known as Lion’s Head; and, beyond it, the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Town’s city centre is just to the right of the frame.

This photo was taken during my visit to South Africa in September 2011. To see what Table Mountain looks like from ground level, go here.

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).
