African Dreams



I've been dreaming of Africa
since my early childhood.

Gorgeous, colorful Africa.

Take me there...







Photography by Paul Barbera.

(One of the commenters just told me
these are actually from Brazil!
Oops...)

Beautiful photos! Have you seen the movies "Out of Africa" and "I Dreamed of Africa"? Both beautifully filmed and great storylines as well.

Ik heb het geluk gehad er al verscheidene keren geweest te zijn, en vooral m'n reis naar Senegal heeft een diepe indruk achter gelaten. De levensvreugde van die mensen daar is hartverwarmend, ik raad je echt aan om zodra je de kans hebt eens richting Zwart-Afrika te reizen - het is een streek met enorme verscheidenheid en zó, zóveel pracht.

I believe some of these pics come from Selvedge magazine. GREAT magazine...Pricey in print...they also have an on-line version of the magazine that's half the price. link: http://www.selvedge.org/
