Girl at Green Mosque (IlhaMoç) by 

On one side of the island backed up against the sea on Mozambique Island, an impressive green mosque adds serenity and beauty to a busy street. I stood opposite a side door and waited for the right person, or people, to walk by. Suddenly, a girl came running from the left and snap there goes my picture! Continuing the theme of “green”, she holds a plastic container no doubt containing food inside. She wears a dress with green highlights.

I live full time in Mozambique with my family (there’s six of us!) and shoot primarily documentary, landscape and environmental portraits. Available for freelance work. Check out (that means “take my picture” in my part of the world) for more info.

    Great shot. Love the green of the dress matching the wall. Good title too; I haven’t seen that film in ages!

  • Thanks Richard. Yeah, great film wasn’t it? Pretty sure this girl isn’t actually named Lola here in Mozambique. The matching dress was just luck I suppose.
