"Somewhere Saturday" - West Africa

The photos above and below were taken in an African village so small it doesn't appear on any map. But its location in the Sahel region just south of the Sahara Desert is not what's important here. Though discolored by age and hard traveling, what shines through in these photos is the character and beauty of the young girls above and the grandmother below.

Somewhere Saturday? Every Saturday I post a photo I've taken somewhere NOT in Victoria.

Wonderful portraits.
Such a departure from Victoria.
I have always loved the African's accented colourful dress.

I admire their beadwork so much.
