A really common scene in Africa - impossible not to notice the colourful clothes of the African people, no matter where we go. I found this little group following a road near Farafenni, not very far from the border with Senegal.

They are smashing combination and extremely set off in the environment and fun to look at with the stunning colours just drawing the eye in naturally. Good natural and spontaneous timely shot just the way they are emphasizing their care free casual manner. Good street shot in fine clarity and sharpness. Tfs

This trio may have walked for miles and possibly have many more to go. The clothes are wonderfully colourful and expressive. They have been very well photographed with the tall grass and shrubs as a BG. Excellent exposure and sharpness - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Contrast well with the colorful dress of the two women, and the man stroll along the bushs area.
A fine view, maybe typical, but sure a daily-life scene.
Bom Fim de semana, e Bom Fim de Ano,

C'est remarquable comment les vêtements sont colorés dans cette région du monde. Ici, j'aime le fait que les trois personnages vont dans la même direction.

African clothes are really spectacular and wonderful. Usually it's mainly women who wear strong colours and lively patterns while men are stricter in white or black, but here we see a man who manages to match the women. The yellow grass forms a perfect backdrop to the strong red, blue and green. Sometimes African women wear dresses with the face of the president printed on them. The material is probably given away free during election campaigns.

The colorful clothes of the people in Africa are indeed such a pleasant sight throughout the continent. It gives this impoverished continent such a nice and much needed splash of color and the joy of life is palatable in the people of Africa.
Pleasant scene indeed, even the man is wearing a flowery dress here.
a happy new year to you

looks like they're walking back from the gas station!
its fun to see what they're wearing for clothes, and also their footwear.
looks like they're not interested in talking to each other either :)
a fine cultural photo and even though there's only 3 subjects there's still lots to see.

Boa noite e começo feliz para a semana.

l?africa è straordinaria non solo nei colori del paesaggio, ma anche per la stessa popolazione che si ha modo di vedere e guardando le immagini del luogo ci si rende conto di come i colori si riflettano anche nei gusti e nelle usanze dei popoli che la abitano.
E' piacevole perciò vedere anche queste scene ricche di colore e di situazioni insolite nelle quali si scorgono persone che camminano verso mete lontane delle quali se ne ignora la distanza.
Rimane il ricordo di una bella foto nella quale hai colti i soggetti con eccellente nitidezza inserendoli perfettamente in un paesaggio che non disturba la visione, anzi, la valorizza nella migliore delle maniere.
Ciao e buon anno nuovo.

Well taken, nice colors for these clothes, perfect light capture.

Yes indeed, this colorful trio really brighten up the scenery! There's quite a feeling of isolation with this shot, it would appear to be a very lonely walk along a deserted road...and if it's not, you've done a great job in conveying that effect. No matter the circumstance, it's a wonderful shot of locals and their every day actions, seemingly simplistic, but rather intriguing none the less.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year ahead. Friendliest regards from the U.S.,

Indeed, the clothes are very colorful. This is a simple but very cute composition. The people, especially the women, stand out very well against the greenery of the background.

Hello dear friend
Happy New Year

I like the bright colors of the African clothes. Each person has something on their head to compliment their outfit, too. It's a simple view, but one that conveys a traditional way of life, and I like that the people are walking away; it gives a different feeling to the photo.

You captured a beautiful daily life scene with the characters in traditional colorful costumes. I love it!

Olá, amiga Ana,
bonita captura de estas mujeres con sus vestidos estampados con colores muy vivos, que proporcionan una gran vistosidad a esta directa y explícita composición.
Excelente realización, con una luz magnífica.
Pili e Josep
Muy feliz Año Nuevo para ti y para tu familia!!

I like very much how these colourful, patterned fabrics are never the same and, although in terms of style the clothes are similar , the people wearing them retain their individuality and look unique. The three people in your picture stand out superbly against the natural backdrop. The perspective you've given to the road is mildly dynamic, the sense of movement is excellent and there's an agreeable rhythm in your frame. Light and colours are wonderful too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,
