Luo boys fishing at Dunga, near Kisumu, on the shores of Lake Victoria in western Kenya; April 1979.

I love the colours and slightly upturned prow of the boat, and its reflection too, and also the overall feeling of relaxation, with time passing slowly on a hot day by the side of the teeming lake.

OM-1 with 75-150 Zuiko at 150mm; Agfa CT18 colour slide, rated at 64 ISO.


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.

    That’s a lovely image, Adrian. I like all the things about it that you mention in your description.


  2. fantastic image!!- so timeless!


  3. Fabulous and yes, the boat reflection. But also the grass in the water at the front. The reflection from that adds a whispy touch to the photo that, I think, would change the feel of the pic if it weren’t there. Great capture, as always, bud. XXX ATP XXX
