Sharing The Bread Niamey Dusk and Dust Niger Photo Hugh Ardoin

The scene looks like some old Dutch school seascape painting 

But something in this picture is missing

The painting of a day of forever coming to its end

Young boys share the bread as if it was their last supper

The trepidations of the day-life have changed into a hazy muffled pastel world

The golden hour has past, gone with the holy images of rococo Sistine Chapel skies
