Please Note: Due to having no internet access while visiting Tunisia, this photodiary is running late! I will be posting two or three times each day for the next week or so until the diary is running in ‘real time’ again.

3 April 2006 – Tunis
Today we caught the train up to Tunis. We are spending three nights in Tunis in order to visit some of the places in this area. I’ve been learning a lot recently about making photographs instead of just taking them when they arrive. This shot is a case in point. I saw the clothes hanging up and decided that a image of the clothes filling the frame would look pretty good. But it laked a focus to the image. I noticed that a lot of people were walking past so I set the camera up and waiting for an interesting individual to go by. I was fortunate to see this woman in the traditional black jilbab dress look look at belly dancing costumes as she passed the shop. A real clash of cultures if ever there was one.
