Madiba’s glasses

On my last visit to Cape Town I wanted to make sure I got to see the Madiba inspired “sunglasses” placed next to the promenade at Sea Point.  The art piece was created by artist Michael Elion, in conjunction with the City of Cape Town as part of World Design Capital 2014 and was in the news recently when it was defaced. 

I popped by early morning before heading off to World Travel Market Africa which I was attending…

… and came back the evening to get some photos of the sunset after the show
