Random Photos Over Here
Today it seemed as if the sun said “F**k you, Winter, even though it’s meant to be your gig right now, I’m just going to shine and be warm today, and you can’t do anything about it, because I am the SUN.”
And to a large extent it did just that.
To take advantage of this, I decided to climb out from under The Girlfriend, grab my camera, go out onto the streets of Cape Town, and take random photographs of small women with large feet.
Unfortunately, there seemed to be a shortage of small women with large feet hanging around Cape Town today. I then decided to change tact, and take photographs of large women with small feet. Luck wasn’t on my side though, as the only large woman I found (who had the tiniest little feet, like stilts, I was convinced she falls over every few steps she takes) well, she seemed quite uncomfortable with me taking landscape and portrait shots of her as she slammed a flapjack in her mouth. So much so, that her boyfriend made me remove the photos I took of her, which I thought was completely uncalled for and which I then assumed would completely ruin my day.
As luck would then have it though, I stumbled across an albino squirrel in the patch of field next to the backpackers (the one in Gardens with the swimming pool, where the hot foreigners sunbathe in the Summer). Albino squirrels are quite rare, apparently there are only 3 albino squirrels in the whole of Africa, so I took a few pics.
Apparently it’s quite famous and regularly makes appearances in Gardens, so keep your eye out for it. And don’t try and kill it, like the one guy who saw it and threw a stone at it because “it was looking at me funny”. Yes, it has red eyes and looks a little evil, but everyone knows that a squirrel has a heart of gold. It’s rats that you should be afraid of.
