They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Eight amazing shots in Africa last week probably worth a billion.
They were creatively shot in Zimbabwe, Kenya, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Senegal, and other parts of Africa.
The pictures caught the moment of self-expression, contemplation, unity, love, and peace. Like we said they contain a billion words in them. So we’ll let them speak for themselves 🙂
On Saturday, children cool off in the outskirts of Cairo.
In Senegal on Friday, worshipers pray at the Mosque of the Divinity in the capital city Dakar.
On Wednesday in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, this girl is among Muslims marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Days earlier in Cairo in Egypt, this boy is seen in a moment of contemplation during evening prayers in Amr Ibn El-Aas Mosque.
The morning’s prayers are followed by henna designs.
The next day in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, congregants also mark Eid al-Fitr.
And the traditional iftar snack of dates is shared between members of Tafara Jamat Masjid in Zimbabwe’s capital on Thursday.
Children in Morocco’s southern town of Tarfaya take free surfing lessons on Tuesday.
