Sunrise in De Bruyn Street

The early morning walk with our dog is always full of visual surprises. One of these is the wide variety of sunrises visible from our street. Our street is De Bruyn Street; named after Pieter de Bruyn who bought the property of Sir Robert Stanford, the name-giver of our little village. Photographer/author Annalize Mouton succeeded in capturing village life in the book “Portrait of a Village” which is for sale at the local Tourism Bureau (Stanford Info) in the main Victoria Street. This book, published to honour 150 years of Stanford provides the reader with a lovely insight in the history and contemporary life in the village. Just in case you’re interested.

For now: some photo’s I shot during an early morning doggy street walk last week.

  1. Lovely imagery!!! Also please could you forward my contact details to Annalize Mouton. I see she uploaded some of my music onto You Tube, I would love to share more with her. I see she is based in Stanford – I too now reside in the Western Cape.
    I tried Linked Inn to get her details but the link kept redirecting.
    Regards and thanks!
