Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope 2

I watched Lost Kingdoms of Africa on TV last night, with the wonderful Gus Casely-Hayford, he featured the Asante nation in Ghana. I had many experiences there and found this photo. I wonder what this little girl dared to hope for.

A few toys perhaps?

  1. a very evocative image .. perhaps the grandmother is sitting on the kerb behind, maybe the mother standing watching, all hoping for the basic needs, shelter, food, love and safety … and where are the men? … hopefully at work earning something to support these sweet girls and their families

  2. Thank you all, I seem to have provoked some strong reactions and that makes me very happy. It really is good to come across someone or something that makes us think and that’s what I love about the blogging community!

  3. Who we become, and what happens to us along the way is so often based on where we were born. yet there is still hope in the eyes of children……wow! such a powerful image, Gilly….this was a great choice!

I would love to hear from you . . .
