Snappy Dresser African Style

June 18

Africa has style! This image is from a wildlife tour in Kenya, 1970s. The bus had stopped in a village for refreshments and this stylishly dressed woman caught the eye of a tourist. I love the classic, African combination of colors and the jaunty yet sophisticated details of her outfit.

I cropped and straightened the image to bring the woman into focus, removed a person from the background and warmed up the color. With selective sharpening, details of the print and accessories really popped out.
