Default A study on Khartoum life

I have been living in Kharoum for over a year now. Every week I go off to some corner of the city on my bike; since christmas I have been accompanied by my CP5700.

Every so often I get a crazy idea of trying to make a little selection on a part of Khartoum life. The first I tried (two weeks ago) was to capture the traditional brick making on the Nile. This gallery was the result:-

I was a fun day alround - I had my bike stolen by a chap (who's picture is now on another gallery) and then followed the cops round while they rounded up the ususal suspects. My bike and I were reunited a day later - a miracle in Khartoum. Life is never dull here :-)

Any comments on the pics would be most welcome

Cheers
Tom

Default Thank You

I greatly enjoyed your slice of life through your lens. I was fascinated with the photo journal on brick making. Thank you for sharing with us.

You have such an excellent eye. Add this to a setting that's exotic to most of us, a place where color stands out brilliantly against a monochromatic landscape, and... Well, let's just say I couldn't stop looking at your pictures until I'd seen all of them.

A fine photo essay the expressions on the faces of those workers are wonderful and very natural. I especially like the picture of the tea lady and the kid

nice work

Default Thanks for the comments

Thank you everybody for your comments. I think I'm rather lucky to able to have the opportunity to get better at this 'photography' thing while living in such a different place.

If anybody wants to see more of my photos of Sudan or some of the other places I have visited in the last two years here's the link:-

Lovely documentary on brickmaking the old fashioned way. I grew up in an area in which they made bricks in a similar fashion one by one...

very nice pics. I need to find some places that are a little more exotic than MD. You are an inspiration.
