Sub-Saharan Africa’s love affair with bright colour: Luo woman on a farm near Akala, in western Kenya; April 1979.

She is sitting in front of the wooden door of a mud hut with a thatched roof.

OM-1 with 50mm Zuiko; Agfa CT18 colour slide, rated at 64 ISO to further saturate colour.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      This Is FATman Photos, treating you now, Hallsann … I think I mentioned being aware (now there’s a first!) of having done several monos in a row, such that it was time for something more colourful, plus I know you hate my drearies and esp so at this time of year, so ‘ere you are, me deario! Invoice in the post, printed in dayglo just for you! 🙂

      But “who nose what might happen”???? Oh you are a wag … no … wag … And I am taking it easy, which is nice, and so far there’s been no further bleeding; having it redressed tomorrow. A

    Ah – I remember this one. Lovely portrait, Adrian. Hope all is good with you.

      Thanks, M – and I’ve just been very taken with your fence reflection. I had a very minor operation yesterday, with the result that my nose, from which a very small lump was removed, is heavily bandaged. No bleeding so far, but apparently it’ll take some time to get fully back to normal – so have to take things easy for awhile as increases in blood pressure could start it off. But its doing ok so far – and my Duvel intake is of course medicinal …. 😉 A
