One of the last picture of Greenland that I will post on TE.
It has nothing special in terms of composition but it has emotional importance for me because these inuiits were the first people that we met after 3 weeks of trekking in remoted areas.
It was a familly gathering with more than 20 people and children who were singing, playing, laughing and eating around this small wooden house at several kilometers by boat from the nearest town (Maniitsoq).
They looked at us like as if we were coming from an other planet when we arrived. 5 minutes later, we were their new friends.
Very very friendly people.
This picture represents also what I remeber from this magical country : Very nice people, small and coloured wooden houses, sun (yes yes) and green grass. Even the flag is present.
Slide film scanned; small croppping.

It is very interesting for me to see daily life in Greenland. I like this scene very much. As your note says, it includes so many nice details: the small house, the family hanging laundry, the national flag. Thanks for sharing this part of your adventure.

I continue to find your photos from Greenland interesting. The landscape is rugged and the colours crisp and bright. A good story you tell of a special time in your life. Pleasing daily life composition. Tfs, Marlene

Hi Alexandre. Spontaneously, the photo reminds me of something the painter Carl Larsson. Of course, you show a modern version of this topic. Anyway, everything fits perfectly together in this composition. Informative text. Well done. Regards, Wolfgang.
