We took a hot air balloon flight over the Serengeti. Our visit in February was a perfect time for the color of the plains, as in the summer the grasses would be brown. The gold and green was a perfect backdrop for the colors of the balloons. The tall grasses made it harder to spot wildlife, but more beautiful when we did.
This man was resting on top of a truck that was delivering produce to a local market outside Arusha, Tanzania. This week we thought we would post some photos of everyday life, rather than the wildlife photos that are more commonly shared from sub-Saharan Africa.
Local food markets are always colorful places for photos. The variety of food is delightful. But, no , we do not each street food in Africa or Asia, or parts of Latin America other than Costa Rica, Argentina or Chile, unless a guide assures us it is OK for foreigners.
I love to ask local people to pose for my photos. They have such character and charm. Sometimes when people ask whether my husband or I took a particular photo, Dave will tell them that if there are people in the photo, Julie took it.
OK. A series of photos from sub-Saharan Africa would not be complete without at least one wildlife photo, so here is a different one than what you would usually see. The colors on the head of this guinea hen seem to compete for attention with the shape of the head.
