The Mbour fish market in Senegal
Fish, fish and more fish
One of the highlights of our trip to Senegal was the fish market in Mbour. Complete chaos but also with a weird kind of order too. Colorful in any case! If you go to the market in Mbour keep in mind that people are not too fond of having their picture taken. With a few exceptions. So make sure you get permission when shooting portraits or just shoot overview shots. Even than they might get angry at you and one of our group was almost hit by a guy who got mad.
I find that always a bit of a tricky thing. On the one hand you want to be able to shoot colorful photos but on the other hand you don’t want to offend any one either. In any case: we managed to make some pretty pictures regardless.
Even if you do not like photography, it is still highly recommended. It’s just fun to pick a spot (out of the way!) and observe people going about their business. An overview in pictures!
