View of Lion's Head #1.

Though Table Mountain is most used as the icon for Cape Town, more symbolic of the city for me is Lion's Head. Its ruggedly sculpted dome and bestial name evoke the sense of what an isolated African outpost Cape Town once was, heightening the contrast between the wild peak and the chic modernist houses that cluster its slopes. So, as part of an irregular series, I'll be posting some of my photos of Lion's Head, to show how it defines and reflects one of my favorite cities.
