In my last job I travelled a great deal although only very rarely was I able to take time out with my camera. This was an exception, during a trip to Dakar in Senegal, I managed to get 2 afternoons free. One was spent on Ile De Goree.

Goree is visted these days particularly by African Americans and others interested in finding the roots of the slave trade. Studies seems to show that Goree was a small player in this obscenity so it is more of an iconic place than a true reflection of the scale of the trade. What is there however is educational and hard hitting.

It is also stunningly beautiful, the irony of this beauty along with the misery of the place has never left me. ( There will be several more Sengal images) Steve

Interesting narrative but I can only see the beauty
in this image with all those wonderfully colourful clothes.
Makes our attire so dull by comparison.
The image also conveys people getting on with there business.
Is the man in orange looking for money with his outstretched hand?
