photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
We were in Guinea for Christmas at Tinkissu Falls, and while its not something I ever celebrate, I was on cook team that day so we did try to do a bang up meal with the limited supplies we had. I was so tired this day though and I was completely shattered so imagine what an amazing surprise it was when the security guard told us that there was a Hippo in the damn. SO EXCITED. Our first Hippo, on Christmas Day! BOOM - Africa Bitches!
We crossed into Senegal and IMMEDIATELY noticed a change in the people. They are so very friendly and the local dress is just stunning. So amazing to see colour and smiles after Mauritania's more subtle style. These markets in St Louis and a thriving hub of colour and characters. Loved Senegal and this first market we saw prepared us for bigger and better ones to come.
Sadly I took this with my phone so the quality is rubbish, but I LOVE the content. You can see Bruce taking a photo out of the truck and in the distance you can see a camel about to cross the road in front of us. Wish it was better quality but that's not to be and guess what? A year on the road, I'm in Mauritania, still going, loving it. Happy Travel Birthday to me!
Crossing Western Sahara and Mauritania is miles and miles of flat desolate country. This day we were lucky to have new bitumen, althought for whatever reason it wasn't wide enough so every time a truck passed us we both had to get two wheels off the road. I Love how the black highlights the distance and also how desolate the landscape really is.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
