Love this shot by @kimberleylombard

Last Saturday at 3pm, 35 Cape Town Instagrammers met at Truth coffee at Prestwich Memorial for the second edition Nifty x Gummie Insta-walk, the 1st walk was around Woodstock to spot amazing pieces of street art, whilst the second was an urban design tour. We had the yummiest red velvet cupcakes by Bullcakes & Cupdogs whilst we waited for everyone to arrive before embarking on our lil adventure through Cape Town CBD – looking at subjects from gentrification to public art (we spotted graffiti, murals and even a sculpture by Brett Murray), city planning and layout, and how certain areas and buildings invite and attract you, whilst others are built to keep people out, it was certainly very interesting. It’s not often we walk around the CBD with iPhones and cameras out, just for the sake of walking around, we met some rather lovely people and snapped some great photographs.

We landed up walking all the way to the big Truth coffee in Buitenkant Road where we stopped off for cappuccinos, for some that was the end of the walk, for others we made our way back to Prestwich Memorial via Skinny Legs & All which was hosting the Yebook Instagram exhibition, wine was sponsored by Spier and ice tea from BOS, there was such a great vibe and the signed limited prints were selling like hotcakes which was absolutely incredible.

See some of our favourite snaps from the second edition Nifty x Gummie Insta-walk below..
