Island city street
A trip to Port Louis, the island capital of Mauritius. It’s a bustling place with a very lively marketplace, its fair share of traffic and people going about their business.
From a photographic viewpoint, one small thoroughfare caught my eye, with its smartness and formality not really in keeping with much of this tropical city, where the country’s colourful flag flies with pride.
It turned out this covered walkway housed the office of the country’s prime minister, and reminded me of a place in London I captured some months ago – but with far less mystery and gloominess.
The street around this portico was full of life, while some palm trees in the distance was a reminder that the Indian Ocean was very close by.
