Great kasianowak 2015-02-23 1:27

Hi Gert
Fascinating architecture very well captured. You have every ingredient here: great colours, composition according the rule of thirds and the human figure introducing the sense of scale.
It's exactly this kind of shots I have in mind when I dream of going to Mali (I know I know... but... one day I will do it).
Have a nice day

Default To kasianowak: mali

Thank you Kasia for your kind words.
Actually, although no place is really safe in Mali these days, I suppose Bamako, Mopti and Djenné are relatively less immediately always totally dangerous than Timbuktu. They are/were also a lot nicer than Timbuktu, which was mainly a very hot and dusty place in the middle of nowhere and honestly rather boring. The towns further south would be normally quiet, but chances are that they are infiltrated by al-Qaeda, so kidnappings or sudden attacks could never be ruled out. The Tuareg militias are not active in the south and would probably not be so dangerous to foreigners, plus that they are presently engaged in peace negotiations with the government.
But don't blame me if you decide to go to Mali.
Best regards,

Default Mali

I don't know... If you continue posting great photos from Mali like this one, I may have to blame you.
Have a nice evening
