Nigerian Forest Girl

While travelling you sometimes have some of the most random and beautiful encounters. One evening just after crossing the border from Benin into Nigeria, we bush camped just off the road. We thought we were in the middle of nowhere but within 15 minutes a small groups of people from a local village showed up. We didn’t speak a common language but somehow ended up laughing and chatting for quite a while and they all wanted their photo taken. One of them considered the area where our camp table and chairs were to be our living room, so he took his shoes off before standing next to Louise for his photo.

The following morning it continued with another small group of people wanting their photos taken. This beautiful little girl’ eyes lit up when she saw herself on the back of the camera.
