Thank you Bev,
For every journey I made in the analogue days I brought as many films as I expected to need. I could never have counted on finding any Kodachromes in Nepal or Mali. I think I brought...

To PaulVDV: profession

Thank you Paul,

To GyurMaster: heads

Thank you György,

To emka: ivory coast

Thank you Malgo,
As I said, I only took one useless photo in Ghana, but I took a few b&w in the Ivory Coast and posted one here. You have seen it, but it is listed as Côte d'Ivoire. (It seems the...

Thank you Malgo,
Others have told me that the trees are flamboyants, Delonix regia.

I'm sorry to admit that I messed it up all by myself. The new version looked so good when compared with the old one, but seen on its own on the site I didn't like it as much. But I can't blame TE for...

Thank you Malgo,
I know of Basquiat. I saw a film about him and his friendship with Andy Warhol, but I haven't really seen enough of his paintings to immediately recognize his style.

Thank you Loong,
It's not a real gate, just an art work made to look like a gate.

Thank you for the explanation.
I had missed WS #3 and 4 because they were not there when I looked. Now I have seen them. They are also nice.

Yes, this mysterious man stirs my curiosity too. Maybe he was a sorcerer or "witch doctor", considering his peculiar clothes. He definitely looked different from everybody else.
