After completing studies at the Tropical Agricultural College in Deventer and eighteen months in the army, I spent six years in Nigeria and Liberia.

I was mainly confined to my workplace - a number of rubber plantations scattered in the South of Nigeria and one in Liberia. It made for one of the more interesting times in my life.

My camera was always with me and as a result I have an impressive number of pictures of life on and around the plantations. This photo was taken by a third party, of me - the nervous chappy in the middle - in a dugout canoe hanging on tightly to a small fortune in camera gear.

The first picture in the thumbnails is the one I took from that same canoe, of the St.John Falls in Liberia.
