In Cape Town...

After a 16-hour all-night flight and a missed connection in Johannesburg -- and I must say the folks working in that airport were as gracious and helpful as anyone could hope -- I've arrived in Cape Town for the start of a photo workshop led by Thom Hogan. Just in time for the demolition of a couple of huge coal plant cooling towers that are apparently landmarks hereabouts. We will apparently be among the few not jockeying for a view of the implosions, likely heading off to the Cape instead. Had dinner tonight at the Africa Cafe, serving a range of dishes from across the continent. All very tasty, indeed. We were each offered a bowl to wash our hands in preparation for eating with our fingers -- then we all used our forks. Ah well...

Today, some composition practice in the harbor area. It was raining, so I focused on shapes, color, texture and the like.
