Gambian Kids Playing Football On A Dirt Field

Kids from our village in The Gambia would play football tournaments with the surrounding villages. I once tried to join them for a match but the dust haze nearly suffocated me and I was left with the feeling that I was trying to play football on top of Mt. Everest.

another beautiful photo...i've gone through all your images so far, amazingly beautiful portraits of a people living a hard life that doesn't have to be...maybe one day humans will get our priorities in a 'right' order...until then it's good there's people like you to help out as you can...
