To GyurMaster: heads

Thank you György,

Djenné is built on both sides of a narrow arm of a small river that almost surrounds the old part of the town. But to reach Djenné you have to cross...

Thank you Malgo,
Others have told me that the trees are flamboyants, Delonix regia.

I'm sorry to admit that I messed it up all by myself. The new version looked so good when compared with the old one, but seen on its own on the site I didn't like it as much. But I can't blame TE for...

Thank you Malgo,
I know of Basquiat. I saw a film about him and his friendship with Andy Warhol, but I haven't really seen enough of his paintings to immediately recognize his style.
Best regards,...

Hello György,
Whenever someone makes one of my photos a favourite I feel it's my duty to say "thank you". I'm proud and happy.
But I have no further comments.

To foxy: gate

Thank you Loong,
It's not a real gate, just an art work made to look like a gate.
This is a kind of back street in an area not much visitred by tourists. Not even I go there often (although I did...

Thank you Paul,

Thank you for the explanation.
I had missed WS #3 and 4 because they were not there when I looked. Now I have seen them. They are also nice.

Thank you Paul,

Yes, this mysterious man stirs my curiosity too. Maybe he was a sorcerer or "witch doctor", considering his peculiar clothes. He definitely looked different from everybody else.
