Thank you very much @travelcontest 😊 great shots everyone!
Here is my entry for travel portrait.
While traveling through Namibia, we stopped at a market in the desert. And met his lovely lady from the Herero tribe. She was selling some carved statues and other hand made gifts. We had a great yarn, then I mustered up the courage to ask if I could take her photo as I loved her outfit and I wanted to remember the encounter 😊

thanks for the invitation @travelcontest

congratulations @plumubble, @vcclothing, and @itchyfeetdonica. You all posted amazing pictures! 😍

Travel Portrait, I think I have the perfect picture for it.

So, when I read "Travel Portrait" topic, just came up in my mind this picture.

I took it to remember the view of our room at the Praia no Sono beach.

I wanted to capture that moment to always remember that view.

This beach is very remote, has a lot of camping sites, the access is only by boat or 1-hour hiking through the woods.

Were incredible days of relaxation, hiking, sea. Looks like a lost paradise in the middle of nowhere and the middle of everything.

Here is my contribution to the Travel Portrait - TRAVEL CONTEST #10
I met this young guy close to some far village on the Teff field between Gondar and Bahir Dar cities.
He followed our filming team because of his curiosity to understand what exactly we are doing in this hinterland.


What a cool contest @travelcontest - just discovered it :-) Here's my entry:


Two years ago I spent a whole month to travel through Vietnam. In the amazing costal town of Nha Trang I met my model Doan, who was very interested in photography. So we decided to try a portrait shooting together and we were both really happy with the shots we created together.

Such a lovely emotional portrait!


Thanks a lot! :-)

Now I finally made it to your contest! It took a while but I'm slowly finding more time posting again.

I share a image which I took 3 years back in the Mae Klong area in Thailand. The image shows a curious little girl watching the world outside her window.

Gl everyone!

Mae Klong, Thailand
