Photo and caption by Edson Walker

I woke up early in the morning to brush my teeth on the shore of the Lake Chad in the city of Bol and a saw this girl coming with a pile of dishes on her head. This scene woke me up completely, i felt that trill that photographers feel sometimes and run to get my camera.

Location: Bol, Lake Chad, Chad, Africa.
