Colours Speak Louder Than Words

The colours in Tanzania are so vibrant and varied that I am almost certain there must be more shades here than there were in England, my homeland.

I used to take many photographs in black and white, but in Dar Es Salaam, it seems such a waste to ignore the vast spectrum of shades that spill out on to the streets everyday.

Here are my some of my latest street photographs, in which I have tried to capture the brighter shades of East Africa.

  5. I’m going to share these with my sister. She spent several months in Tanzania taking part in a project and she loved the time that she spent there.
