sacrifice to the hippo god by 

Old photo found in uganda taken by one of the missionaries , due to local custom every third child had to be sacrificed to the hippo god’s , to bring bountiful fishing for the villager’s , the child also had to wave as it left , to bring happiness to everyone ,
Nowadays this is frowned upon as a silly custom , we all know it should be every second child sacrificed to crocodiles . :)

I work in the building trade , but photography and travel are big passion , everything I do is self taught ( taking shots or photoshop ) as I am no good at listening , ( or writing )
I use a canon 40d
or various compact cameras
