[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a picture captured a cold morning at the Sani Top 2874 masl. in Lesotho. I borrowed the title from the text on the souvenir shop. That is also the way the country like to present itself. This was more a good bye than a welcome for us, as we here are close to the border, and we were on our way out of the country. I found the colours and texture on the little shed attractive. They sold hats, caps, crafts, fruit and the ubiquitous Coca Cola.

Hi Erling,a very small shop very original and colorful,great capture from this very high place not often visited and seen on TE,useful post,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hi Erling
always great to see new posts from you.
I like your choice of title too, that was smart. and I like the colour combination of green and yellow, we don't see it very often.

I'm jealous that you've been to a country like this, I wish I could go here too. I'd be really interested in hearing your stories from this trip.

excellent subject material here. makes me wonder what else you have to show us

Hi, Erling,
We have not often seen the photos from this far and small African country. Simple but amazing photo, perhaps there are lot of similar markets.

It looks unique, Erling, and very well chosen this perspective.
Strong, deep green color, with mustard-yellow painted frames, in fine contrast.
Well posted this humble shop.
Good evening,

Hello dear Erling and have a nice time
and a happy new day
a different photo from you
I red carefully your useful notes
concerning this picture captured
a cold morning
welldone and wellseen

Hi Erling,
This is quite charming, simple and honest shop. I also like the colors and the textures. Well taken.


Hej Erling,
En ganska originell souvenirbutik. Den får inget pris för arkitekturen, men de starka färgerna och de handskrivna "skyltarna" gör den lockande för en fotograf. Jag var själv i Lesotho för väldigt länge sedan, och det var väl bara naturen som var vacker, inte byggnaderna.

Hej Erling,

there are only very few photos from Lesotho displayed here at TE, so thanks for the peek behind the invisible curtain!

Mange hilsner fra Tyskland

Hello Erling, How you went there? We rarely see the pictures from Lesotho. Nice view of this small shop. The items are so neatly arranged. Lovely composition.

Have a nice weekend

Hello Erling,
Excellent photo of this small shop. The green and yellow colours are very attractive and I really like the POV and the tight framing you used.

Hello Erling, very good photo of this interesting craft shop, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy start to the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.
