I came across this attractive facade of a photo studio while strolling about the city of Elmina, Ghana. Lively colouring and lucid illustration looked beckoning me for taking a picture.
Elmina is a city, situated about 12km west of Cape Cost in Ghana, and well known for Elmina Castle.

Good morning Hisashi,
This is for sure a quite simple and poor shop, but the owner has phantasy and joy of life !
Such bright colors, such nice decoration.
The butterfly at right upper part must be a TV or FM antenna !
TFS and have a nice day

What a colorful and lovely shot of a photographer shop. As it is in Ghana, so I do not think that the owner is a Chinese, because they prefer red and yellow over other colors. Very vibrant color hues, high sharpness and excellent POV. Well done

This is a great photo, typical of Africa, see similar in Uganda. Lots of colour in hand painted images, I went to Ghana fifty years ago, it is one African country I would like to visit again.
All the best

I really like the deep, saturated colours here and the fun content. Nice light. The open door just seems to welcome people to enter.

ca en jette sur les couelurs, aidées par un beau soleil bien maitrisé, une devanture sans prétention qui indique toutefois bien ce qu'on va trouver à l'intérieur.

Hi Hisashi. Photo movie (not digital). Photography as a subject of photography. What's better for TE. With your photo you show a really beautiful scene. I must smile. Very well observed and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

i'm really enjoying your work from this African Trip.
most of your photos are like this, very colorful, vibrant and eye striking.
seem like people in Ghana enjoy making visual statements.
beautiful rich lighting here
hope to see more

I am always attracted to these hand painted colourful signs, and you have really found some that stand out with their bright saturated colours, of course you had to take a photo, it is so photogenic. The little shop is so quaint too.

Well seen, a funny picture, good colors with your good management, tfs.

you discovered the fantastic front of this photo-video study, which advertising paintings with its vivid colors attract strongly our look.
I like the direct simplicity of the painted images, that it gives a great freshness to the composition.
An excellent chromatic level and good light at this good work.
