Puppy love for new Table Mountain picture frame
Harry the Staffie is in love with the new giant yellow picture frame at Eden on the Bay in Blouberg.
The frame, the third in a series being introduced across the city to celebrate Table Mountain being named one of the New7Wonders of Nature, provides an idyllic vantage point for visitors to photograph friends, family … and pets, with the mountain as a spectacular backdrop.
Four-year-old Harry – a regular at Eden on the Bay who enjoys long walks on the Blouberg shoreline with his owner, Jamie Mascall – was delighted to pose in the 2.8m-tall by 4m-wide frame, produced by local artist Porky Hefer.
The frames are sponsored by the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company, and the interactive artwork is an official World Design Capital 2014 project.
As with previous frames unveiled at the V&A Waterfront and Signal Hill, the temporary frame provides an eye-catching perspective of one the New7Wonders of Nature, with the public encouraged to share their photos on our frame gallery slideshow.
“Eden on the Bay has a ‘picture perfect’ view of Table Mountain,” says Yolande Karsten, centre manager of Eden on the Bay. “We are thrilled that we have received a frame to capture this magnificent view. Even our furry friends are enjoying it!”
Sabine Lehmann, MD of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company, is delighted that people (and their pets) visiting Eden on the Bay get to interact with the frame during World Design Capital 2014. “It is a wonderful way to celebrate nature’s perfect design of Table Mountain,” Lehmann says.
