Default The Local Shopkeeper

I had a frustrating day. In between lessons I tried to get some decent shots of the seniors Sports Day - and failesd miserably. I was defeated by a combination of my own short comings (which run a long way, if you'll excuse the pun), the harsh mid-morning African sun and the long jump!

On the way home I took a pic of my local shopkeeper, who speaks very correct English, calls me 'my dear' and always has something to say.



I quite like it, particularly the blue background and his face, which is very northern sudanese.

Cheers
Tom
