goree

The caption for this picture, taken by Michael O’Reilly, read: Goree Island, Senegal: A boy with a bucket on his head tries to walk through a hole in a wall. Which explained exactly nothing to me except the location of this scene. Taken from an angle the whole photo has a vivid motion that caught my eye.

Upon Wiki-ing it, I realized that I did know Goree after all, as a pilgrimage site for those seeking to commemorate the slave trade to the Americas, although its unique topography off the coast of Dakar was new to me.
