Taken on the same road where I took the first one. This is the road that connects Kedougou to Segou, in the South of the country, near the border with Guinnee Conacry. During the rain season, it gets sometimes difficult for many people who have to use it daily. Here, the road is completely flooded and people have to find a way to pass.

C'est intéressant de voir des photos d'ailleurs et de leur vie quotidienne. La photo est magnifique et parfaitement composée. L'âne et le personnage animent bien la scène et la végétation en arrière-plan est superbe. Je me demande toujours pourquoi l'eau n'est jamais bleue comme chez nous.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon dimanche,

questo tiuo reportage sull'Africa mi piace molto perchè hai focalizzato la tua attenzione più sulle persone che sul territorio dando luogo ad una serie di scatti che sono la fedele rappresentazioini di una situazione di povertà e di disagio purtroppo molto diffuso.
Eccelente inoltre la parte tecnica.
Ciao e buona domenica

Original and unique capture of a daily life. It has been taken with superb sense of the moment so the woman and her animal look very well on your composition. Very natural scene. Well done!
Have a nice day!

This is an inspiring photo and shows us how life must continue under these flooded conditions. I like the way that the donkey has made the water splash. The colours and exposure are excellent.
Kind Regards, Ann

To carry produce on one's head seems like the safest way to keep it dry ... of course, you would need to have a remarkably good sense of balance.
This is a most interesting daily life scene and one which I have never experienced but thank you for informing me.
A lovely composition with sharp details.
My warm regards,

Enjoy the orientation and timely shot, watching her is also rewarding although she is are fully aware of your presence! Her engaging face, expression and body lingo are essential part of the shot, and hint of eye contacts are also attractive element that make this shot. An interesting every day subject full local flavour about rural people and their routine that tells a story. A fine 'street' candid well taken, lighting, colors and contrast are spot on. The animal is probably afraid of the clicking sound of your camera Ana!! Well done, TFS

Une très belle image de la dame portant son linge sur sa tète, la présence du petit âne, des couleurs et lumière naturels, une vie quotidienne qui est très belle malgré les conditions de vie difficile pour ces personnes

El autentico sabor de Africa, esta presente en esta fantastica composicion, sorprendente el animinal... me parece una gacela, saliendo del agua tan tranquila, con la presencia de la mujer tan proxima, la mujer con sus tipicas ropas y el saco a la cabeza, es un toque ideal.
Magnifica iluminacion y nitidez, en una imagen de agradable colorido.
Pasa una buena noche de domingo.
Saludos muy cordiales.

it's interesting to see how this simple and ordinary daily life scene has become so attractive and meaningful in your photo. The composition is well balanced and it's easy and delightful for the viewer to get the essence of the scene as well as linger on the details. The intensity and quality of the natural lighting are superb. The colours and the textures have been rendered with fine precision, are beautiful and make an impact that's direct and vivid. I also like the movement to opposite directions. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Good sharpness and graphism and a superb capture of the woman carrying produce on her head and the donkey crossing the flooded stream. The diagonal bank of the watercourse adds good dynamism and perspective. Natural looking colour and saturation. Tfs and have a nice week!
