Well, I`m sorry, but I haven`t got any beer for you, just another scene from the top of the Sani Pass. I couldn`t resist to capture this charming shed where they were selling handicrafts. Especially the funny slogan written on the wall caught attention. As in my previous post I borrowed the title from a sentence written on the wall of the shed. In the background you can see a traditional rondawel building which is very common in Lesotho. This was taken the same cold and misty morning as my previous post.

Hej Erling,
Detta är ett slagkraftigt och intressant foto. Kontrasten mellan souvenirbutiken i grälla färger och den traditionella runda byggnaden är fantastisk. En riktigt påpassligt fångad bild.
Hälsningar från Stockholm,

Hello Erling, Funny view of this shop in the middle of nowhere. Nice hats and hut. Nice to see something less shown. Lovely humorous composition. Disappointment for beer drinkers, not for me.

Kind regrads Malgo

Hi Erling
yes, pretty cool isn't it! the misty air in the morning limits what we can see in the surrounding area, but it would appear there isn't much of anything around at all. Looks very deserted. is that the case?
and despite the early morning mist and fog, the light is striking that side wall perfectly for you. another interesting little subject! cheers

Hello Erling,
This is probably an excellent way to attract attention for your shop in this empty landscape. The bright colours stand out very nicely against the more natural brownish tones in the background. Well captured and composed.

Hello Erling,

this is a good way to catch the attention of the clients.... this is an interesting image, well seen,

Best regards,


Hello Erling
I think it is good to see that in this for us unknown world people life with sense of humour. Although I can imagine that a cold beer was just the thing you were longing for.
Good idea to show it to us.

Hello Erling, good photography of this interesting craft shop with a curious advertisement, very well captured in this interesting image, with good clarity, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy weekend.
Affectionate greetings from the south of Spain.

Hello Erling,
humble shop hut, and the joke gave a sense of "life" to the place.
Nicely spotted, the blue, white and green tones worked superbly to add yet vivid tones to the place.
Have a nice new week,

Free beer got me here!)

Great shot with excellent colours. The soft hazy effect on the picture makes it even more intriguing. Misty yet bright up front! A very good capture, this one, Erling.
