20 thoughts on “Zanzibar Dawn ~ The Seine Netters

  1. Tish, such beautiful colors! Almost ethereal or surreal, I can only imagine what this must have been, during the time you were shooting it. It must have evoked an emotional response at the time, excitement, joy, wonder, awe! 🙂

    1. Yes, all those sensations evoked, Mitch, and also a sense of privilege that I was lucky enough to be there. But this was one of the reasons why I found living in East Africa for seven years so tiring – all those full-on reactions/emotions, the always being so very much awake when the sights before my eyes often seemed like dreams 🙂

  2. Tish, I am sure it was like living in a “Wonder of Wonders” everyday, from your posts and photography, I have gleaned a sense, that between nature and the natural world, the peoples, places and things all around you, that there was always something to see, shoot, write about. Alas here I even have to remind myself, there are wonders to see everyday! It is just because we live in the places we do and are a part of our surroundings, that we forget to look at the spectacular beauty that is everywhere. It seems much easier to see it, when you are in a different location. 🙂

    1. That’s so true, Mitch. You are literally taken out of yourself. Everything is novel and exciting. And you are right too. We need to look at our very familiar surroundings with the eyes of a stranger now and then. We might be amazed at what we find 🙂

  3. Oh my goodness this is an unbelievable photograph. And with the red tanker in the background!
    So many shades, so many nuances.
    If this isn’t in a large frame it darn well ought to be.
    One of your best, Miss T.
