This is a scene captured in the village of Babanango in the KwaZulu-Natal-region in South Africa. We had been driving for some hours and needed a break. The first that catched my attention was these buildings in the outskirt of the village. I stood up to try to take some pictures when these two girls suddenly showed up, obviously on their way bak home. I believe this is the first picture from this place here on TE. Hope you like it.
Thanks for viewing.

Detta är en riktigt bra bild, och de båda flickorna gav dig god hjälp med kompositionen. Det är kanske inte världens bästa boendemiljö, men de små husen ger ett nästan kubistiskt intryck och flera av dem är målade i fina pastellfärger. Det torra gräset ger en fin inramning upptill och nertill. Men flickorna betyder enormt mycket för bilden.

Hello Erling ,
Like a little village of very humble houses , but not without charm . I like a lot the view with the grass and the people in the FG .

always great to be the first to add a new town or city to the TE listings!
this is fantastic, the conditions look to be very simple, nothing too modern or sophisticated. I wonder about their history and their story.
excellent capture with the girls returning home, it makes the scene that much better and easier to relate too.

Same pattern houses, painted white, pink and light-green which created a nice array of tones. While looking carefully we can reckon this is a Favela type dwellings in SA.
Yet, I see a Sat-Dish, gardening near houses and laundry hang, signs of life.
The two young ladies gave you a nice idea for the title.
wish you a nice weekend,

I think that we not good realize that we life in a Paradise here in Europe.
We see all the small houses and the two girl or women walk to their house.
Your picture is splendid taken.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

A good view of this village that seems deserted, if not for the two girls caught in the foreground on the hill overlooking the village. Very interesting photo of this remote place.
A nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both the sharpness and the lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I like it
Enjoy a good day.
Very best regards.
