Looking at the whole picture before diving into the detail

So, I've spent hours, days and months pondering over picture 799 in the Unofficial Cape of Good Hope series (http://sns-challenger.ning.com/photo/albums/cape-of-good-hope-unofficial). 


The strong, visible columns make the building so easy to find, you'd think. But now comes a complexity of my own making.  Early on in the process of looking for these places I printed out each…

After carefully working with Google Maps and Streetview (I love that technology!) I narrowed down the options for a re-photography on Saturday afternoon.

We drove down Strand Street, and I watched the angle of Lions Head change in the rear-view…
