The Dark Continent

So I went to a land ripe for comedy: Ghana

I found out that jokes about lepers are somewhat less funny when you have spent time in a leper colony.

Anyway, here are some pictures from my trip:

oh thanks, I hesitated to post something that wasn't flippant, so I am glad you liked.

the white spots on the boy's face - is that leprosy? it looks so innocent.

Manfoom said...

the white spots are just mud. I didn't include any of my leprosy pictures in here, but maybe I shall...

I really love these photos, too. What camera did you use?

Manfoom said...

thank you much. I just used a cannon powershot 630. I haven't owned a camera in some time. I like the camera, though it doesn't handle low light situations very well.
