Basem & Fa | Washington DC Photographers
A terrific opportunity came up to go spend a few weeks in Senegal. We too the opportunity to upgrade some of our equipment, try again to teach ourselves how to travel light (that was a wonderful failure), and pick up an awesome new gear backpack since we were going to be mobile around the capital city of Dakar and out in the villages most of the time.
Interestingly, we were completely unable to log into the website from outside of the country. The work around was to head over to our Facebook Page to set up some albums there for sharing what we were shooting. For those who've travelled outside the US, some countries have WAY better internet than we do. Well, we went in the opposite extreme, back in time to 1998 speeds. It was a labor of love to to upload photos 1 at a time then go do something for then next hour, sometimes just to return and find out the upload failed.
We won't get into too much specific narrative here since the albums on FB are organized with lots of commentary there.
