Photographer's Note

This is another re-post of a photo from a journey through West Africa in 1981-82. I first posted it in January 2008 but didn't quite like the colours, so I have made a new scan. Hopefully you will agree that this one is better.

Here is the original note:

A girl I met while strolling through the older part of Mopti city in central Mali. I don't remember if she asked to have her picture taken or if I asked her. In any case she posed willingly and without fear. That was 26 years ago, so this little girl is today probably married and the mother of several children. Let's hope she has a good life.

To this I can add that now 33 years have passed since I took this photo.

As usual this was scanned from a Kodachrome slide. You can see the original version if you click in the box to the right.

Here is a larger version of the re-post.
