Chil­dren fall into fo­cus

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - TRAVEL 2013 - TRAVEL WRITER

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Te­via Zi­eff of Blou­bergsands for his pic­ture of chil­dren play­ing on the streets of Is­tan­bul.

While strolling through the back streets of the Sul­tan Ah­met dis­trict, he says he came across th­ese chil­dren play­ing in the street out­side their home.

Zi­eff wins a R300 meal voucher at Blow­fish Restau­rant in Dol­phin Beach, Blou­berg.

The run­ners- up are Sandy Wil­liams of Clare­mont for her pic­ture of Zurich, Switzer­land, and Mar­garet Luff of Kom­metjie for her pic­ture of ele­phants on the Chobe River in Botswana.

Wil­liams ad­mired the beau­ti­ful build­ings and the colour­ful flower boxes that dec­o­rated this pic­turesque Zurich street.

“I could hardly be­lieve just how all the build­ings and houses were so neatly dec­o­rated. You see flower boxes every­where, whether in the city or coun­try­side, in al­most ev­ery­one’s homes and even the ho­tels.

“Ev­ery­one seems to take so much pride with their boxes. They re­ally bright­ened the drea­ri­est of days.”

Luff was on a boat on the Chobe River watch­ing var­i­ous wild an­i­mals com­ing down for a drink.

“We had the priv­i­lege of watch­ing a herd of ele­phants swim across the river. It was awe­some to watch them wait­ing for each other and help­ing the younger ones, when they got tired, by let­ting them climb on their backs.” Com­pe­ti­tion rules: ● All pho­to­graphs must re­late to travel, and you may en­ter as many as you like.
