Little thin people

Humor is hard to achieve in a photograph. Photos that sound funny often aren’t when you see them and things that sound mundane can sometimes get the biggest laugh. The best are visual jokes that defy description…they’re just funny to see. When I saw these carved pieces in Senegal I immediately chuckled. I quickly fired off a few frames using a 200mm lens to isolate the dark shapes against the light sand. As I walked past the shop owner quickly rearranged them.
