"This is a photo that I took of children in Jamestown, Ghana. Jamestown is a district of Accra, the capital city of Ghana, Africa. I was there with a production team about eight years ago scouting locations for a movie. Being that we were obviously not from around there, we were an object of great curiosity to the local children. They followed us around all day Pied Piper-style. What struck me about these kids was their beautiful and lively spirits: some were shy and some were outgoing, but all were so friendly and welcoming in spite of the poverty in which they lived. I found them simply enchanting. That they accompanied us throughout the afternoon made the day very special." -Frank Darabont
