Streets, trees, trains and fire

Cape Town is on fire. Literally. A fire started on Sunday and is spreading. It’s about 40°C today. I can’t imagine being a firefighter in this heat, battling these fires today. Power to them. Today’s Photography 101 assignment is to photograph a street. Both of these photos were taken a couple of roads away from my house. The first is a beautiful tree-lined road; green and lush. The moment you turn 180°, you’re met with the mountain, raging, smoking and showing no signs of slowing down. I also photographed a train, as everyone gets on with their day-to-day activities as our beautiful mountain is ravaged by these flames.

Just 180° and the greenery slowly fades as Cape Town burns.
