Dhow Boatmen in Lamu - Full of Strength and Agility

Dhow Boatmen in Lamu - Full of Strength and Agility

Lamu is one of my favourite places in Africa, and getting around is a joy.

There are no cars in the old town and if you want to get between islands you really need to take a dhow.

The young men that crew the dhows are incredible sailors. I hope this image captures some of their strength and agility.

 

The colours are not altered. The shot was taken with a 50mm lens on Velvia 50. Behind me was a low late afternoon sun, hence the rich reds to contrast the blue of the sea and sky.

I particularly like the triangular shapes this image throws.

I hope you enjoy it too.
