What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)
Fig tree, cocoa
Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)
Because agriculture is dying slowly. If I could see in future just now you wont see any agriculture. They putting more into tourism. The children studying agri in school but they doing theory and not practical. Community cultures around agriculture are fading.
What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)
Agriculture might still be there but the cultural part of it wont be. The part that might be handed down to you from your elders, everyone used to have a backyard garden now you don’t see it so much. Crops for money but not just to feed family.
