Mali 01 Beginning a short new series from Mali. I have been looking back (and reprocessing) some images from Mali made in 2005. Its unsettling in some ways. I remember what a fantastic place it is and think how lucky I am to have been there. I think of the current troubles there. I remember the ‘dust season’ which is when it is easier to travel really rather than the wet season. I also realise my own limitations and the number of images I would like to reshoot as well as the limitations of the 20D and the lenses I took. Hopefully I have come along a bit and the gear sure has.
I do like the mood of this image. It is a mud mosque alongside the Niger river upstream from Mopti. The day was particularly dusty and the sun was always strained through the dust like a yellow wash. The smoke is from fires along the beach made to dry little, very boney, fish.
also experimenting with posting by email…..
