Weekly Photo Challenge: Community (II)


Monday 16 December, 2013 by Uncle Spike

Clan Spike’s second entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is, sorry, yet another from Zanzibar, off the Tanzanian coast of East Africa…

But in my defence, there was a great sense of community there, especially among the families for which fishing was the common denominator. This shot was taken late morning when the fishing boats are due back – these women are there on the beach every day waiting to take the catch off to be sold…

  1. I thought Zanzibar was wonderful – your photo of its beautiful people brought memories flooding back. Did you visit the fish market? Wouldn’t pass any health and safety rules here, but a fantastic sight nevertheless!

    Gorgeous photo! It brings back memories of a holiday I had with hubby in Zanzibar. Think I have some very similar photos! And you are so right, the sense of community there is heart warming. These people have very little (in our terms) but are so much the richer for it through their humanity and collectiveness. I’m also reminded of the best fish curry I ever had now…

    Please! Don’t be sorry. Look at those colors; from the beautiful white sand, the crowd of colorfully dressed women, to the rich blue ocean! Never too many of these kind of photos:>)
    Thanks, Clan!
