Sorting out photo albums, found some randoms …


How does he know that?

Dude in Company's Garden

The Company’s Garden in the centre of Cape Town is a place where you can stroll, visit museums, feed the squirrels, have a picnic, meet your lover for lunch, or just chill in any position that appeals to you.


Somewhere on the Garden Route. Lost in time.


This is part of the canopy walk being built at Kirstenbosch Gardens. I can’t wait for it to be ready.


This place also gives tour guides free coffee, does that make tour guides ugly? Not sure what the T&Cs are.


Soft feathery portion of a very prickly cactus in Oudtshoorn.


These yellow frames have been placed at various places with a view of Table Mountain and the idea is you take your photo framing the mountain. This photo is ‘outside the box’.


Rooi Els on Clarence Drive.


I met these two very friendly and crazy Iranian tourists at Boulders Beach. They insisted I pose with them for a variety of photos and then they allowed me to take some of them.


The creator of most of the Cape’s most spectacular mountain passes and coastal roads.


At one of my favourite stops on the Garden Route – Storms River Bridge. Best spot to buy biltong for padkos, have a toilet break, admire the view from the bridge and just generally stretch your legs.


Flaunting it.


Abseiling off the top of Table Mountain.


This is on a large property in Constantia with a very neglected house. It’s for sale but no buyers can be found. I’d buy it just for this spot if I could.


Wine tasting underground at Weltevrede in Bonnievale. They make one of the best bubblies in the region.


The NG church in Swellendam. Beyond strange.


One of the famous feather palaces in Oudtshoorn.


Builder with a sense of humour while renovating an old house.


These are too big for Vida and I don’t want to give her any ideas about the poor postman.


Massive horse created from old tyres at Grande Provence Wine Estate in Franschhoek.


Stream running red due to tannins in the root system of the plants.


Possibly the most photogenic and pristine beach of the Western Cape – Dias Beach in the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The Cape of Good Hope in the background.


The horror of seeing this in my own neighbourhood.

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.
