Agadez is a city in the desert with beautiful Sahel-style mud architecture that includes the Grande Mosquee with a pyramid-shape minaret. The old city (Vieux Quartier) has crooked streets and irregular shaped houses. Agadez is populated mostly with Tuaregs. It used to be an important caravan stop, but these days to a significant degree trucks replaced camels.

Hi Irena. There is an old song, Oko moje plavo i garavo...Your pseudonym reminds me of it. As for the image, one thing i have learned from some of the best (keribar for example) is to have a little patience and wait either for something to happen, someone to move into the frame or move out of it. The objects in the foreground serve no purpose and are better cloned out, as for the fellow on the left, a split second before or after would have made a better time to click. I might do a little workshop to see what i would have done if this was my photo. Ciao. Klaudio.
