I saw you! (aka On top of the world - ii)

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 26 June 2009 in People & Portrait.

Hopefully this photo gives you a better sense of perspective than Wednesday's post did. This was taken very close to the area where the lady was sitting, with this young man being part of a group who were climbing the rocks and using their cell phones to take photos of the setting sun. Unlike the young lady from Wednesday, he gave me quite a look when he saw me taking photos of him, and then promptly climbed down! I didn't mean to spoil his fun, but I think (and hope) he got the photos he was hoping for. I most certainly did!

So - all that remains for now is to wish all you wonderful people the most fabulous of weekends, and I will see you all on Monday!
