Hausa Online

Learning Hausa (and other less commonly taught languages) using the Internet

Posting pictures

Posted by hausaonline on Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I am just back from a four week trip to Africa. In an earlier post, I mentioned that I wouldn’t be blogging during that time. In that post, too, I included a picture which I took some years ago during an earlier trip to Central Nigeria. It showed three people and a cow on the back of a pickup. One of the readers of this blog found this picture offensive and advised me to be more culture sensitive. I was a bit surprised, since I didn’t mean to criticize or mock anyone. But then, I decided to delete the post.

Now here is my question to you:

  • What do you think should or should not be shown on a picture taken in Africa?
  • In your opinion, what would be “good practise”, what would be inappropriate?

I realise that this is a bit off-topic for this weblog, which is normally more about learning Hausa and other LCTLs, but it would still be nice to share some of your experiences with me and others.

    Hi. I on numerous occasions scan this forum. This is the oldest period undisputed to ask a query.
    How multifarious in this forum are references progressive behind, disingenuous users?
    Can I bank all the facts that there is?

    Dear visitors!

    I am happy that someone noticed that I asked a question which has never been commented on. I wold be happy to read some people’s opinions about good practise in taking pictures in Africa.
