About This Image

Muslim ladies in Gambia wear traditional dress, on special religious or ceremonial occasions and for attending the Mosque for Friday prayer.

I took this image while visiting a friends home in Gambia, this lady asked me if I would take her photo, she returned some 10mins later dressed in her traditional outfit.
I'll print a couple off and send them to her.

Enjoy:)

I echo Jas in feeling of this capture. The vibrant color of the ladies dress speaks loudly of her strength.
