Photographer's Note

"A solitary moment in Africa is food for the soul..."

That's what a T-shirt i bought in South Africa says... And I think i got the idea, ;-) when i took this picture from a friend of mine that went to Angola with me.

This is the "Buraco" beach in Angola. A very plain beach, very beautiful. It seems endless for all sides. Bare signs of civilization can be seen, even tough it is 30km from Luanda, the crazy capital.

The African situation, the people's beauty, joy and poverty make you think and reflect a lot. Face the reality and you end up feeling ashamed for desiring a better car or fancy clothes. My final conclusion is that my personal problems are ridiculous enough to be ignored: they have real problems.
