Hello Sylvie,
Nice to have you back. Love the colours and the nice mood in your photo.


Bienvenu de nouveau, j'espère pouvoir voyager avec toi a traves d'une serie merveilleuse...

I saw this and right away, before reading the title, I though "Senegal!". Lovely colors, strong composition, and great point of view that shows how men often interact with each other (so different than in the U.S.!) and those crammed car rapides. Ah, it's all coming back to me now. How was the weather there in March? Good too with the two men at the side to create balance between them and the car rapide. This captures the essence of urban Senegal. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful colour pallette.
As it's not the whole bus door in the picture, I think you could crop on the left side till the bus.

have a great weekend,

Hi Sylvie,
Glad you're back. I missed you.
Very nice colourful shot.
Well done,

hi Sylvie,

Back home ,but still in Dakar with your heart ;))
I like the streetscene, the buss overloaded and the great colours. It's a " whish-photo" : when you see it, you whish ... you were there
many greetings, inn
great you're back ;)

What a colourful place! :)
Strange to see a bus without glass on the windows, but maybe it's meant to be that way...
And I see it says Babacar on the bus ;))
I like it how you've caught the moment of friendship and closeness, through the hug of the two guys. Even if we don't see their face, I can just about imagine that they're both smiling.
And though the street scene itself talks of poverty and not plenty, it also hints at plenty of real humane attitudes. Maybe because of the bright colours, donno...
Love it!!

hi sylvie, a parade of colors! :) nice and well composed. cheers :)


hi sylvie,
africa as I know africa too. the colors, the friends together, no windows in the bus, broken sidewalk .... little people this time on the street. seeing it is going back to africa. thanks. frans

Dire que j'ai travaillé là, il y a bien longtemps, comme dans une autre vie !
Ca n'a pas tellement changé, on dirait !
Elle est chouette, ta photo !
Bonjour de Bruxelles,
