Pure (White)

This weekly theme is ‘pure’.

Robben Island is a small island, a few miles south of Cape Town in Table Bay. The island was used for a number of purposes. But it is most ‘famous’ for its use as a prison. The Dutch Colonists were the first to use this island for that purpose. But during Apartheid in South Africa it was a facility to isolate and banish political prisoners. Among them Nelson Mandela.

Now the island is a museum and a World Heritage Site. But not simply a museum that tells and shows how things were. A visit to the museum shows how transformation of a shared history can result in a new start of a shared future. The tour guides of the museum are former guards and prisoners. They show people around, telling about the past, adding their own experience and stories. But they also emphasize the prize of human rights, freedom, equality and the necessity of critical debate and dialogue.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward (View on Cape Point)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘reward’. A reward is about receiving something back; it is the result of an earlier action or behaviour. But maybe the most important is that you are able to receive that reward. In fact life is about being able to receive and freely give. This is the beautiful view on one of the windiest places I have ever been: Cape of Good Hope. This is the view from one of the terraces on Cape Point. Mesmerizing to watch and feeling so grateful to bring this image home on my camera but most of all in my heart.

More Choices (Kiting near Cape of Good Hope)

This time two colored photos and one monochrome one. For me it is about the noise (not sound but visual imperfections of the sensor of the D70 caused by a very high ISO level :-), yes my fault). All three suffer from this. Question remains: monochrome or color? What do you prefer?
