Sunset on Table Mountain

I’ve been very busy these past few days so blog entries have taken a back seat. I spent 2 days with some very special people last week, I’ll write about that when I have more time to focus properly on what I write.

I spent today with Sarah, a friend from Jo’burg who specialises in social media marketing. As I drove her around Cape Town showing her the sights and doing touristy things she was tweeting all about it. I’m totally impressed at how she finds interesting and amusing things to say about stuff I would not have thought were worthy.  Some of my throwaway comments and observations were all over the twittersphere in seconds.

She has a very large following on Twitter so I’m hoping to get loads of exposure out of this. It means I’ll have to tweet a lot more and build up a bigger following. Social media is unavoidable nowadays and I love it but it’s very time consuming.

We ended the day off with a sunset trip up Table Mountain. There are only a few days each year when it is warm and wind-free up there and today was one of them – what bliss! As it was sunset there were lots of people with sundowners an of course many cuddly couples. I once again cursed my little old simple camera, it’s just not good enough any longer!

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
