I kept trying to click an image of a mother carrying her child all through the trip. It just did not work out.
And on the last day of the trip, as we drove around Lagos with an old friend and batch mate from film school I saw this lady carrying her baby in the market, it was evening, the camera was set on slow shutter speed and the stripes swirled around her.
This was our first trip together, away from Sanah. We were both on work so could not have taken her along.
If she was younger I would have just strapped her to my back and gone on with my work.
