This is indeed indeed a long street, but the stretch right near Greenmarket Square in particular just exudes energy and excitement, and it's been famous since the 1960s as a funky "bohemian" and nightlife hangout, with myriad bookstores and antiques shops as well as bars, clubs, cafés, and restaurants (especially African cuisine). Come here in the daytime to capture its various examples of its ornate Victorian and Cape Dutch architecture (with the Blue Lodge, above, being a good example of the former). 

Two miles long and more than 3,500 feet high, this flat-topped is a dramatic, ever present part of the city landscape and a surefire photography bonanza whether from near, far (like here, captured from another mountain called Lion's Head), on top, or from below. Up top it's also home to a national park. The only limit to portraying this Cape Town icon is your vivid imagination.
