I've took this picture in the exit of the "Institut Français" in Zinguinchor. She was selling fruits and she ask me for a picture.
A very charming woman.

Salut Jean Claude. This natural beauty is so appealing. No affectation, and with a length of cloth it is amazing what grace can be created. J'aime le sourire et ces yeux tristes. Regards, Klaudio

Hi Jean Claude,
A nice portrait with a blurred background. This woman may be selling fruits and is wearing old clothes, but she has such a noble posture. She also looks very relaxed in the front of your camera. Well done!

Hello Jean Claude,
great portrait! You say she asked you to take the picture of her - she must be used to having photos of her taken. Or does this grace and elegance come naturally? It seems she's smirking at you(r camera).
Beautiful colours, anyway, and good use of the blurred background with the strong graphic effect.

I really like portraits - and this one has a look that is very relaxed and informal. The colors of the poles behind match her clothes well.
