Far Away Friends

Dawi, one of the many people I met whilst travelling. I spent some time chilling sleeping really far away from normal life in a village called nakaswa and this kind person spent time getting to know me, showing me local life and making sure I didn't come unstuck by the night dancers! He also showed me the magic of "strong water" - I think it must be 99% neat...

 

A true character, I grabbed this shot in my last few minutes of been in the village - the background is one of the fields that contained sweet potatoes - a breakfast I don't miss! His son Dennis was amazed by my camera, never seen anyone pick up an object and make it work so quickly.

 

No editing - just a conversion to black and white. A genuine image! In colour his eyes are bloodshot red...
