Fishing fleet at Elmina Harbour by the side of Coconut Grove hotel. The white building on the opposite bank is Elmina Castle.
I came here to see a daily life full of vigor, which is spirit that Japanese have lost.
Elmina is a city, situated about 12 km west of Cape Cost in Ghana, and well known for Elmina Castle.

Very exciting daily life at this fishing port in riots of colors, simply amazing. What a memorable experience you had. A very good people photography of all these people, and you have captured the feel of being here, the mood and atmosphere very well. Love the vibrance and activity of this shot which makes an interesting documentary picture. Well done.
Urs (14082) 2011-02-21 19:39
What a lively and colorful market! I can imaging the sounds and smells, it must be a great experience. So many action to explore! Excellent light management producing vibrant color hues with high sharpness. Congrats that is a great shot.
What sun dried fish I recommend, that depends what dish you like to cook. The best is to ask the vendor, what fish can be used for which dish.

There is so much going on here, I don't even where to start looking, all is in great details, there are so much to appreciate, even in such small dpi and size, I can only imagine you can make so many small images out of this shot alone. Excellent quality shot and much details I need to take sometime to really look at it.
macjake (57074) 2011-03-05 6:20
sorry for such a late reply, i was away for a week.
these photos from ghana are a great collection for your personal gallery.
again, with the organized chaos, the people, the busyness, the activity, the colors, lighting, and some of the expressions on the faces...
just a wonderful visual, so much to see and view.

il y a autant de couleurs que de personnes sur cette scène pas très grande d'ailleurs. Serait-ce unsport peu connu ? En tout cas l'ambiance a l'air bonne.
