  1. I bet the building filled with sand is periodically visited by snakes and scorpions :)

  2. Zorica says:

    These photos inspire serious wanderlust :) Nice to see such great photos of the region which is not that well known in the world.

  3. Olga L. says:

    Amazing photos! They are well combined and each brings its own sense!

  4. Captivating images. You’ve managed to capture the soul and spirit of West Africa in a manner that neither pities nor patronizes its people. I am about to set out on a perpetual travel journey myself. I hope to be even remotely as enriched as you.

  5. Wow. I’m a pretty crap photographer-if there’s a perfect moment I’m guaranteed to miss it, but these photos definitely inspire me to try harder and work on learning more about photography. You’ve got some incredible shots here.
