sur la terrasse...

Teshka looking forward to a cool fruity drink on a hot bright day in Lomé.

We are under the pale shade of an umbrella here but still need to squint just to see each other. And it's especially hard work for an uncoated lens in the midday sun near the equator.

The photograph is tilted for that real professional high-class artistic effect. Or was I falling over?

Lomé, Republic of Togo, June 2009.
