This is from a village near Banfora in southwestern Burkina Faso. I was there with people from an NGO to study some development project and took the time to walk around when I met this girl carrying her baby brother or sister. She didn't mind posing for a photo. Probably the event of the day for both of us.
Scanned from a Kodachrome slide.

A very fine and documentary picture of both the girls and the houses (huts?). Did you look inside one of these houses? How were they furnished?
The colours are fine and as usual, a very good scan. What is NGO?

very nice happy face who lives her life in a not very rich world.
Great architecture and atmosphere.

A value report from another time Gert, your picture has a good quality, excellent light, the huts in the bg shows another way of life, that village girl takes care well of a little sister, a brillant picture

This is very exotic place for me, I have never been in the Central African countries with similar life style. I like her smile, it seems she looks very friendly.
I think if you re-post this photo today it will get more comments than 6 in 2008. ;)
Best wishes from sunny warm Ural!
