This is a portable supermarket in the capital Ouagadougou of Burkina Faso. In Africa, even a small shop under private management is called "supermarket" in many cases.
There is a modern large supermarket like Marina Market and local traditional Central Market nearby. Photographing there, however, was not allowed. A friend of mine has been arrested for photographing a library in Bamako.
Ouagadougou has a population of 1,475,223, which is the 32th largest rank in Africa. Quebec City, Lyon, Grenoble, Turin, Kumasi, San Miniato, Briton Ferry, Leuze-en-Hainaut, Kuwait City and Taipei are sister cities with Ouagadougou.

Very colourful and cluttered shot, with the frame full of details, shapes, people, dirt, and above all brooms. Great daily life capture which conveys a strong sense of what the place is like. Very interesting note about restrictions of photography - this is happening all over the world.

about your friend, i guess thats the things you learn when traveling to different countries and places, lesson learned!
these are wonderful cultural photos, we can learn so much just from viewing them.
so many elements are in play here, especially that cart.
and how the woman is carrying her child, we dont do that here in canada

unusual, funny and interesting shot.
A real daily life scene from Africa.
Well seen... great job.

J'aime beaucoup le titre de ta composition qui reflète bien l'essence de la situation. Tout semble très serré et l'espace est restreint. Les couleurs sont merveilleuses.
danos (103150) 2011-01-28 7:04
excellent this open air portable supermarket,with the owner to be sitting on his chair, waiting his customers.A good reportage shot from this unknown from me photographically country of Africa.

The photo which could be incorporated in my last serial. Nice seen on your trip Hisashi, friend.
PJE (20758) 2011-01-28 22:03
Hisashi this photo reveals a kind of lifestyle that is so very different than many here in the Western world have ever seen. This shopping cart wagon shows that one must use whatever resources and means to make a living. Excellent cultural capture of the life and times here.

A very well coloured scene of life well collected. your image is rich in various and interesting elements very well collected. Interesting element of human life too.

Strong colours in a very busy image but with a clear centre of interest all adding up to a very interesting picture. Well done.

Were it not for the color of the skin of these people, I would think that a scene from the market in some small town in Poland. Beautiful, full color picture and very good coverage.
Mari63 (4085) 2011-01-31 14:12
Ciao Hisashi, immagine colorata.
La scena rappresenta qualcosa di cui i paesi "civilizzati" hanno perso la memoria. Mi piace molto e sai corrisponde a scene di vita raccontate da alcuni miei alunni che provengono da quel paese africano. Ciao Mari

Great and colourful image, I like the light and shadow in this image. In fact the light works well with the foreground in bright sunshine and the interior of blue shop in relative slight darkness. There's loads of colour and plenty to attract the viewers' eye. The whole thing focused perfectly and sharpness is excellent while the shop assistant and the lady with her baby give it some life. The shot itself is really just a record of something that caught your eye and at a later date will doubtless invoke a memory or two. Good photo opportunity, well done and Congrats.
