A common daily scene captured in the centre of the Dindefello, a little village near the famous 100 meter high Dindefello waterfall that is part of the Niokolo-Koba National Park, a World Heritage Site with an area of more than 9,000 km2.
Situated near the border with Guinea Conakry, this beautiful area can be reached following a hard but beautiful road that comes from Kedougou.
I really liked this area - the village and the beauty of the place. In the centre of the village we can find little and humble stores with this one.

very good picture and I like how you used all the vertical lines to split the photo into smaller parts. Very nice contrast between colors and textures and placing the woman with the child is just perfect.

What a simple store this is and you have made a very fine photo of it. I like the shabby colours and the vertical panels of door, curtain and wall. The woman and child are placed in a lovely position in front of the roughly painted sign.
Excellent exposure etc.
Kind Regards, Ann

I love this photo of a very typical African street with the simple shop consisting of a table. The naivistically painted sign is beautiful and so are the faded blue door and the patterned white cloth covering the entrance. The woman looks a bit bored, which is a common expression when business is slow, or maybe she just tries to avoid your camera. Her child can't hide his curiousness. This is very well composed and the colours are excellent.

Special moment on the street market, the lady looks as lost hope, while the kid view the tourist with a camera that stopped by, maybe not aware of his mother's dispare.
Fine photo collected.

Superb close up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. I like the small boy face following your photo action. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.

On est loin de nos boutiques de luxe occidentales! Ici, on essaye de récupérer quelques pièces pour tenter de faire vivre sa famille et, visiblement, on n'a pas trop envie de sourire. Bonne photo, très explicite sur la situation de cette famille.

I love the name this lady has chosen for her store, La Boutique! It shows her pride in her work and what she sells here, and it really makes me smile. She does look a little bored though :)
A great capture of daily life and from a country I dont get to admire very much on TE.
All the best

looks like Senegal is a real paradise to observe other people and their daily-life.So different and yet so similar.This one is well observed,framed and timed.The woman seems to be concerned about something or maybe she´s just bored?anyway it´s magnificent composition with interesting scenery as a background.
Have a nice day

A fine shot and slice of life, this is superb social documentary about the small store with vividness in colors to hold the attention, and good balance composition. There is enough clarity and details to attract viewer to hover around, the boy's eye connection imho, is vital in this context to otherwise looks ordinary without the impact. This shot conveys your objective really well. Congrats.

It is the kind of photo that I like the best. Yours has strong emotional dimension, Ana and you share it with the family in front. Me too. I like your sensibility.

I love the composition and human interest of this photo. You've composed and framed your capture in a solid way that makes the setting seem composed by geometrical shapes like pieces of a puzzle. All of them are attractive and have eloquent, natural textures and colours -even the dark bits that stand for a mysterious and inaccessible interior. I like very much how mother and son stand out in this setting. They captivate our interest, especially the little boy with his curious and engaging stare. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
