From 1959 to 1963 my father took photos of ordinary people in Cape Town.

found these amazing vintage shots by liberty littlebasil‘s dad from the beaches & pools of cape town in the memory bane pool group over on flickr. there’s lots more – go have a look.

boogie woogie board

my mom snapped these in the late afternoon at kogel bay – bear in mind that they were taken from the coastal road above the beach – if you have ever been to kogel bay you’ll know how far away that is. love this sequence & the sunset light on the water.
