Another photo taken in the yard of the little lodge where we spent the night, in Dindefello. The kids of the village use this space to play football and they usually come to watch the foreigners who spend the night here.
Dindefello is a little village near the famous 100 meter high Dindefello waterfall that is part of the Niokolo-Koba National Park, a World Heritage Site with an area of more than 9,000 km2.
Situated near the border with Guinea Conakry, this beautiful area can be reached following a hard but beautiful road that comes from Kedougou.

You told me you weren't interested in football, and now you show us this :-). I think the boy with the striped shirt wants to be like Cristiano Ronaldo and score another fantastic goal. At least he looks faster and more clever than his friend. It is a charming and colourful shot and the pale red ball looks very good with the green background.

Boy will be boys all over the world. Give them a ball to play with and they are happy.
A really charming every day scene from a world so far away from our own.
have a great week

Like and enjoy your Africa captures
This is quite touching, boys playing with a ball on the orange earth
Capture taken at the right moment with the ball in the air, so plenty of well taken movement
Well done, regards

What an adorable photo! It looks like the fellow who has the ball is trying basketball. I love the frozen action in this photo.

Beautiful timing for this shot to capture the ball in mid air like this and the two children fascinated by their game. The color of the ball is very striking in this setting too, against the earth and greens it really stands out. A really cool daily life scene, thanks for sharing.
All the best

Une jolie scène de vie que tu as prises!
J'aime beaucoup ce genre de clichés!
Superbe regard humaniste!

I think this goes to prove two things...the popularity of football, and no matter the age...you give a boy a ball to play with, and he'll find a place to kick it around, regardless of the playing surface! :)
A wonderful moment of interaction between these two young boys during their exuberant youth. Another splendid photo which conveys the people and their activities. Very well timed to catch the ball in mid flight and the two intentively waiting to react. Sharp, detailed and properly exposed for maximum effectiveness. Great work!

muito bom seu senso de oportunidade, apanhando os moleques no exato momento, com belo senso de movimento, vida e alegria. muito bom o enquadramento do ambiente ao redor. pelo visto o povo é a maior atração fotográfica desta sua viagem.
