During the last couple of weeks, as I’ve ridden through busy streets of Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Banjul (the Gambia) as well as some lonely roads, I look hard at my surroundings, seeing so much more than I can photograph and yet that I would like to store. As Walt Whitman said
Once I pass’d through a populous city imprinting
my brain for future use with its shows,
architecture, customs, traditions
I haven’t yet found a good way to make the imprint stick.
