Photographer's Note

...well, not really under the moon.

That's a "taxi" captain preparing to bring passengers across the bay in the afternoon, at Michamvi Beach in Zanzibar.


Zanzibar is an island in the Indian Ocean, East of Africa.

It is an autonomous part of Tanzania with its own parliament. In fact, the name "Tan-zania" comes from the union of the mainland, Tanganyika with the island of Zanzibar in 1964.

Zanzibar used to be the seat of the historical Oman State and the centre of African slavery. Arabic influence is all over the place, the religion being one of them. Zanzibar is 99% muslim.

Used a Cokin grey filter, increased contrast & sharpness, corrected the axis.
