The Young Folk by erwina

Last summer myself and my wife undertook some voluntary work at Ekwendeni Hospital, in Malawi. One of the poorest countries in the world, we were struck by the optimism of the people who lived there. They had so little, yet they enjoyed a simpler life, which we were more than a little envious of. We enjoyed a game of football with these youngsters, and they made us feel rather old and unfit.

Taken on the deceased Olympus mini
mju on it’s final trip before the African dust finally killed it – by this stage the lens had long since given up retracting into the body so it was only a matter of time…

taken on the deceased Olympus mini mju 4mp – this was it’s last adventure – the African sand got where it shouldn’t have and that was that.
Again I used my trusty but now deceased Olympus minimju 4mp. I had the Canon eos 400 at my disposal by this stage, but in these environs I was keen to be as discrete as possible – and the youngsters loved looking at their pics on the screen!
