Picture taken during a visit to the fish market in Nouakchott at the end of the day. The light was really beautifull, but it seems to be a quality there. The light was amazing every day.
Nouakchott captivated me, with its colours, its beatifull women in their wonderfull melehfas, its simplicity and absence of fast foods and other modernities, which are making all the cities to look so alike.

Hi Flavia. Yes the light is special and so is the ambiance.A busy place but you managed to isolate this young woman with downcast glance. Regards. Klaudio.

fazia tempo que não via fotos suas por aqui. Excelente captura desse mercado de peixe. Gosto das cores da roupa típica da mulher e dos detalhes dos peixes em primeiro plano com um bom fundo desfocado.

Good Morning Flavia,
Your notes resonate with me; too much is the same in cities in many countries.
I love the subject which you have composed well with good guide lines from the fish slab. The colourfully dressed figure, the only part drenched in light, is the star of the show.
Good use of narrow dof.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Bom saber que está de volta:)! Infelizmente, a Mauritania não aparece muito por aqui. Gosto da foto! A luz está realmente boa e a composição também. Gosto do ar pensativo da mulher ao lado daqueles peixes enormes. As cores também estão muito boas!

It's the light falling on the young woman, her clothes and the warm colours surrounding her that I find most captivating in this photo. Overall it's an interesting daily life shot from a country not much known by most westerners.
