Weekly image #1 – Curiosity

An elder is curiously looking into the camera in Bobikuma, Ghana.

This first of my Weekly Images shows an old man that I encountered in a village in the rural Central Region, Ghana. While we were sitting in the small courtyard of a walled adobe compound with the head of our NGO interviewing a family, an old man (who I assumed to be the grandfather) appeared in the door of one of the huts and sat down on the steps, curiously marvelling at us. I took this picture of him, then walked over to show him the result. He looked absolutely amazed, I think he had never seen himself on an electronic screen before.
