The cathedrale Saint Marie is the seat of the archbishop in Conakry. Sorry, but I have no more information about this church.
A small story about Conakry
The street numbering scheme of Conakry labels all roads with a two-letter code for the urban district, followed by a three digit number: odd for north-south streets and even for east-west, e.g. KA002 for a northbound street in the Kaloum district.

The architecture of this Cathedral is very interesting, because of its style so special.
Good framing that catches the whole building between the palms, with a great dynamism and an atmosphere full of life because of the crowd in the street.

The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The palm trees are framing well the catheral. The point of view is allowing us to see the deatils and colors of the architecture of the Cathedrale Sainte-Marie. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

The sky is not the best, and the contrast is perhaps excessive, but the shot is well composed and give an idea of traffic and daily like in this far city.

Good setting with the crowd in front, image is well composed with fine details!
