The Wood Collector

A sad but reflective face with a story.

This gentleman could not speak. Before letting me take his photograph, he had undone his scarf to show me a large hole in his neck. Through sign language he made me understand about the operation he had had and that now he could no longer talk. His frustration could clearly be seen as he showed me his wood store and then endeavoured to direct me as to the best way to explore more of the village. I will not forget him.
