A Dash of Color | Bo Kaap

February 3, 2014

A street of color

This is one of the first photos I took when I got to Bo Kaap. I was seriously overwhelmed by the color. Wouldn’t you love to wake up and walk out to a street like this?

Cape Town has so much to offer but the idea of visiting a the Muslim quarter with every house painted in a different pastel color was the most intriguing. Bo Kaap was the first place I visited when I got to the city.


This might be my favorite photo from the set. I need to come up with a hashtag for photos that are worthy of hanging on my wall.


People leaving their homes to head to work early in the morning.


Meet Ibrahim, we shared a name and had an instant connection. I am so happy he was willing to pose for me. Sometimes having a common Muslim name helps.

An Empty Street

Most of the streets had cars already parked on them. I was looking for an empty street so that the image isn’t as dated. This photo takes me back to Bo Kaap every time I see it.

Cuteness Overload

This little girl was walking down the street with her mom and I asked if I could take a quick photo of her. I loved this littler girl’s poise; she commanded attention. I am so happy I got to have a little bit of time with her. I can’t get over her cuteness.

Any thoughts?
