Two doors in Bo Kaap

My only regret about Bo Kaap is I didn’t spend a couple of hours there. I got maybe eight minutes, and I was stopped and complained at for shooting by a local for half of that time. With all the irregularities of the space there are hundreds of composition opportunities. Any pair of doors was awesome simply for the stark differences in color. Green against red worked fine by me.

  1. I wonder if the owners worked together, painting their houses in contrasting colours to make their homes stand out to passes by and create a colourful street.

    • Yeah, if I had the time I would’ve shot the whole street. There are several dozen homes like this – mostly bright and bold. Some complement each other, but a few clash & it all somehow works.
