You have to take a closer look if you want to find out in which one of the pools the diver is jumping. That’s because of the different levels of the picture. And spot on took this photo just before the contact with the water and after the take off. Where and how she tells us here:

The photo was made in December 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa. Cape Town is one of my favorite travel destination, I was there five times already! I spent this sunny day with friends at the Sea Point Pool. That’s a public seawater pool right next to the sea.

I have always been fascinated by the mix of people around therefor the Seapoint Pools became a really special place for me. I already actually took photos there in the last few years. You can check out some of the photos on my blog or my website!

This picture was made by accident. As we stood on a bridge shortly before leaving I could catch one of the diver in the perfect moment. Even today I can’t stop looking at this picture for a bit longer.

It has even a place in my appartement and hung at one of my exhibitions.”
