Namaste Swapan. Unforgiving landscape, hard life and no rest for people such as this shepherd. For some it may look idyllic, but for him, he can hardly wait for the end of the journey so that he can unload the heavy load. The colours are muted and fit the mood.Regards. Klaudio.

Ciao Carlo. La vita sarebbe noiosa in una piccola città, se le persone non avevano nulla da chiacchierare sui loro amici e nemici. Il grande muro di dietro di loro suggerisce che il peso del mondo è sulle loro spalle. Un uomo con la barba a sinistra è in ascolto a quelli che sono ben sbarbati e non è divertito. Bella impressione della vita. Meglio che guardare la TV da solo. Ciao. Klaudio.

Hi Jorge. Interesting title to match equally interesting shapes which would also include the heron's neck.If anything, it's chosen this spot to appear less visible to the little fish or frogs it's trying to catch for lunch. Well spotted. Regards. Klaudio.

I like this eye-catching and quite original composition. There are some very nice lines and shapes here, as well as fine tones of blue and white, and the flags add a lot of bright colours. Most of all I like the silhouette of the sailor pulling a wire. This was well seen and nicely cropped.

How very different this is from the photos I took with Malgo in Warsaw recently :-). With alldue respect for Warsaw this is a lot more beautiful. The dark cloud covers the rising sun just enough to enhance the rays. The golden tones of the entire view are fabulous and the waves look like they're rolling quite gently towards the beach. You captured a fine atmosphere.

What a nice coincidence. In 1984 I met and interviewed Mongane Wally Serote, in Botswana as far as I remember (or could it have been Zimbabwe?). I don't remember if that story was ever published, and i don't remember much what he said 30 years ago. Still it's very nice to meet him again through your note. As for the photo it shows again the stunning scenery and strong colours of Namibia. Seeing this cracked mud and the vast dunes it's hard to imagine there actually is a lot of life found here for those who know how to look for it.
