One of many sellers that can be found selling vegetables and other things along the road, in the market of Tambacounda. This one was taken by lunch time and most part of them were already gone. Only a few were still standing there, surrounded by goats, in the hot sun.
This market is amazing and full of life and colour. However, specially in the big cities, the locals don't apprecciate cameras at all, only a few accept photos.

La photo est intéressante avec le personnage et les animaux bien dispersés. J'espère que celui-ci à accepté avec un beau sourire. J'ai vu seulement un endroit, que je nommerai pas, où les gens n'aimaient pas se faire photographier, sauf pour de l'argent ou ils tournaient la tête. Pas de chance avec moi, je m'arrangeais pour les prendre de loin, ils n'étaient pas contents et puis après.... Un beau souvenir de vacances.
Tous mes compliments,

I like this photo, well balanced composition in excellent light. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done.

Truly a heart-touching photo, as livelihood not come easy on the third world countries.
Great document here, nice photo with the three skinny goats walk around the woman try to sell some fruites along the road.

The street may not be very neat and tidy, but your composition is. I like the woman and the goats among the straight horizontal lines and with two vertical lines of the wall behind them. It's a very good shot of daily life in a part of the world where people are working under difficult conditions to earn a very meager living. It is sometimes quite difficult to photograph dark skin in a strong light but you have done this very well.

I see in your note that at this time, most of the traders have left, and this scene creates a somewhat desolate scene of the lone woman and the animals. There is a great sense of gritty urban life to this. Nice work.
All the best

A scene so arch typique for Africa, one has the distinct feel of being in the scene oneself and looking at the fruit seller. The roaming goats add a further interest to the composition.
have a great day

This appears so lonely and virtually desolate, and yet is full of life with both the human and animal element. Certainly a different scene from a market that is rarely, if ever, viewed in this manner...only seeing what, and who, is left behind. A telling and very interesting shot in its simplicity, something a bit out of the ordinary...and I like it. Sharp, well exposed and plenty of texture. Nicely observed and presented graciously. Have a great day ahead.

Nice candid shot of side street about the lone small-time vendor plying her trade, Well done on your efforts, there is much to look at, the blue popping head scarf really hard to ignore as this keeps grabbing my attention plus the other nitty gritty- props around to give the additional interests. I find the backdrop rustic wall makes the subject strikingly stands out even stronger. Obviously you have cleverly observed the potential of making great shot within the constraint to compose smartly. This is good street -humanity subject and thanks for the insight and of course your organised foto work. Well done.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm roadside with strong light and long old/syone wall. It's good at color contrast, and it's also interesting in the spectacle in which the animal like a goat is pastured at the roadside. And, the young seller who wears charming skirt and blue hair skirf draws out a good impact in this image.
