Antsirabe in Black and White

There are some bloggers that leave me laughing out loud. Most don’t but yesterday I guffawed in my mind while reading Rachel’s Whims Black and White photography challenge (my room-mate was sleeping and most definitely wouldn’t have appreciated a real live laugh). Although I wasn’t going to be blogging while down in Antsirabe, this bustling pit of a town 160km south of Tana, I felt I couldn’t pass up her challenge.

I’m not here as a tourist, so I haven’t shot much, but here we have them: five monochrome photos. The streets are so filthy I decided to pass up the push-ups part of the challenge. I feel like such a failure.

    Ha! Glad I could get you guffawing. Love your pics. Wish I looked that happy while washing clothes. Perhaps you’ll find time to go back and ask her what her secret is. Maybe she uses Cheer detergent. Yuk, yuk, yuk! 🙂
