Yovos ("white persons" in Fon) certainly attract a lot of attention from the young ones of Ketou!

thats a great photo and I very much like the PP, it gives it a dreamy effect, how did you do it?
im currently in Mali and although im not white am still considered one and get the same treatment especially after i take one photo and they get to see it in turn they call the entire village to come out and see. the colors here are blending well with the composition's. i especially like the boy in the corner running.

wow, caleb... this is quite some sight... never in my limited travels i have seen SUCH attention from the locals. but the crowd movement (and AGE...) and vividness of this whole ordeal is magnificently captured in your photo. i love it.
my compliments and thanks for sharing
ps. did you use some noise reduction filter on the photo?

I like that photo, it has a lot of motion and life in it. Also the lighting fits well to the theme. And of course the fact that you were there to capture the moment.
