Great pic. But so sad that the news from Nigeria was so tragic.

It is an image of someone who participates wholly in life...a royal queen, of course! Wonderfully expressive portrait.

Excellent portrait Mo, not many that could carry off a 'chapeau' as big and colourful as this one. She looks fabulous.

I bet this was a wonderful ceremony to see. This woman looks so happy in her brilliant costume.

There are so many lovely traditional costumes all over Africa, they are always so colorful!
