Photographer's Note

Michamvi Beach...

A dhow is a typical Indian Sea boat used in Zanzibar both for fishing and transportation purposes.


Zanzibar is an autonomous island belonging to Tanzania. It 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.

The name of the Tanzanian federation is the combination of the mainland Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar, hence, the name Tan-zania.

Cropped, increased sharpness, saturation & contrast, applied gradual toning, retouches and corrected the axis.
