[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For my last post of 2006, I chose this image of happiness and sharing, taken in Dakar in June during a lunch with my friends.
It was such a special and happy moment.
I wish I could be with these women today and I want to dedicate this to them.

Happy New Year to everybody at TrekLens !!! with many beautiful photos to come ...

Do I see Fanta and Sprite on the table? :D
But why are there question marks on the chairs??

Great choice for that last-of-the-year pic! Couldn't be a better one with a better message.

A truly wonderful image of sharing and happiness. Great colours and composition
Happy New Year's

The scene looks very familiar!

Bonne année nouvelle, avec beaucoup de sourires, joie et partage! ! Tel et lequel ta photographie ! !

Tudo de bom! (all the best!)


Ps:. And I`m sorry if I Kill your language with the mistakes!!:)

Happy Newyear, Sylvie... a bright, colourful image to conclude 2006! TFS

"So happy together... how is the wheather?"

Haha, very nice shot for the new year Sylvie. I like the complicit feeling the people ahve with one another, so bright and content- a lovely image. Nothing but promise coincides with this image.

I can't help but notice the man in the back sitting in the green chair with the question mark stuck on it. So interesting.

Well, all the best luck for 2007!


Hi Sylvie,
Great shot ful of colours and affection to these peope in Dakar, It's funny to see you in the mirror taking this picture. An excellent last posting in 2006. Wish you all the best in 2007 and be sure to see you around on TL. I'm looking foreward to your postings in this new year. Have a nice evening!

:) in 2007...!

Tu as fais fort avec cette dernière photo de l'année. C'est tres émouvant.

Merci pour tes voeux. Reçois en retour les miens.

NB : Pourquoi le bonhomme au fond est-il tout seul ? Aussi, on ne te vois pas tres bien sur le miroir. Foutu contre jour!

Not a great quality photo, but it is a great moment. Therefore, it's a great human quality photo.
Wishing that those happy moments will repeat.

You've captured that bright and amazing colors that people wear in Senegal. And the food there...delicious! Wonderful expressions of laughter captured on their faces and good perspective with the table..sure the quality is not as good as many of your other photos but photos like the one above have sentimental value for me. The Fanta, the big water bottles! Memories...which restaurant did you ladies eat at, just out of curiosity. I like the question marks on the backs of the green chairs, strange. TFS!

Splendide assemblée de couleurs joyeuses portées par des femmes qui le paraissent tout autant.
