Poor Teddy!

A teddy bear, lost by a toddler or a baby, rests on the post of a fence after nightfall at a trail near Friedrichsdorf, a town some 15 kms (9 mls) outside Frankfurt, Nov. 11. It was apparently placed there by walkers, hoping that its young owner will eventually retrieve it.

Soccer in Kigali

Soccer in Kigali

Last week, I had to take pictures of a man found guilty of organizing one of the massacres in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
I was reminded of a journey that took me to the country a couple of years ago, leaving also a lot of positive memories. This shot that I found in my archives shows a boy playing soccer on the outskirts of Rwanda’s capital Kigali with a self-fabricated ball, wearing an old Colorado Buffaloes sweatshirt.
