Photographer's Note

This is a repost of a photo I took towards the end of a long journey through West Africa during the winter of 1981 to 1982. I did not like the colours of the old version and I am still not quite satisfied, but at least this is a little bit better.

I was on my way to Lagos, Nigeria, from where I would catch a flight back home. But before I crossed into Nigeria I spent just over a week in Benin, visiting among other places Porto Novo, the small capital city a short distance east of the major city and commercial hub Cotonou.

Walking through a village on the shore of a lagoon on the outskirts of Porto Novo I met these men and boys. I have no clear memories of taking this shot but I guess I just asked for a photo and they kindly obliged. The boys were clearly more than happy to be included.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. If you click in the box to the right you can see the original version.

Here is a larger version.
