Three guys hanging outside a "hole-in-the-wall" supermarket who probably have noodle soup available too. The handpainted advertising is interesting in this scene. Building your own house is a major expence for most people worldwide. Let's say your house is finished but lack painting. No problem, just call a company that are willing to pay for the paint as long as they can paint their products on the walls on the house. I'm not quite sure if I would like to have Coca Cola or Toyota advertising on my house but in some places in Madagascar it was quite cool. Very colorful and handpainted in most cases. (More examples in the workshop)

Art-work or daily life, Boa, you managed a nice combination of the two themes.
Fine taken moment with those guys at the kiosk-window, as they seem to find some shelter under the shadows.

Hi Boa, good photo of this interesting scene of everyday life, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thank you for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy start to the week.
All the best from the south of Spain.

Curious scene from daily life.
Shop makes impression.
Good frame and colors.

It's relatively bright and lovely shade with eye-piercing colours as the advert attracts viewer's eye from what looks like a somewhat popular eating spot. It's effective bold arty stuff painted on the wall vigourising the place and uplifting this shot tenfold.
A cute snap depicting the essence of local life with the guys - and bare feet, an example of how urban environment can exist on several levels. Thanks to your keen observation, of an excellent street vibe and thks to your beautiful extra images I greatly enjoyed.

Nice slice of life in Madagascar, the shoes are not mandatory

Tre intressanta och färggranna bilder. Sådana väggmålningar är ju oemotståndliga fotoobjekt, gärna när människor spelar lika stor roll som i den här huvudbilden. Lite mer ljus på mannen i mitten hade väl inte skadat, men annars är den ju perfekt. Madagaskar verkar vara ett väldigt spännande land som jag gärna vill höra mer om.
Kan du kl 14 idag?

Nice scene in front of that fast food store. I like the colors of the advertising artwork. Good catch!

However, a very remarkable way to get your house painted. It can be the solution for people with financial difficulties.
I guess this makes the towns and villages much more colourful.
Pretty and colourful daily life-shot from a rather unknown country.
Best regards, Paul

This is an interesting daily life capture, with the colorful wall making the image very attractive, and the light was difficult, with strong shadows, but you've managed it very well! Very nice composition! Excellent job!

Madagascar! Isn't this one of the poorest countries in the world? I think it is right? and its often on the list of countries NOT to visit by tourists.
and yes, the shadow and lighting is a bit of a problem here, but not major - we can still make everything out quite easily.
interesting cultural info about the paint and advertising.
I wonder how the life conditions are for these guys. We don't see many shots from this country...hope to see more.
awesome TE post. cheers
