Chopper dude


I had some time to kill today between 2 jobs so I drove to the end of Breakwater at the Waterfront and poked around between the dolosse to see if there was anything worth photographing. By the way, did you know these are a South African invention and now used throughout the world?

This chopper was preparing to take off with a lucky bloke who can afford this very expensive flip over the city or the whole bang shoot of one hour all the way to Cape Point so I got ready to try catch it as it took off. The passenger saw me and took a photo of me taking a photo of him. Cute. I hope the one of me is going viral via his Facebook page as we speak. But it was only when I uploaded today’s photos that I saw the next photo. You grumpy thing!! You’d think he’d be happy to be going on such a nice ride on this gorgeous day.



And off they go.


And here are the dolosse, with Table Mountain in the background (where I went with clients a bit later and where it was hot hot hot, for a change.)
Oh and there’s a young woman who was having her photo taken in among the dolosse in a variety of lovely shoes.

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.
