Maasai youngster by Linda Sparks

Many of the tribal children in Kenya and Tanzania were beautiful and very appealing (even to someone like me who is child-averse). This Tanzanian youngster just had the most riveting expression and this is the only shot that I got. What a pity. Taken in the Ngorongoro Highlands of Tanzania, Africa

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
