Masai Mara, Kenya. July, 2009.

This was taken during a visit to a small Masai village on the outskirts of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. It was quite an eye opening experience to see how the traditional peoples of Kenya lived, still preserving their customs and tribal lands even as they survived on subsistence level farming of cattle and some income generated from the tourist industry.
The children were so curious about my camera, all crowding around to have their photos taken and to see the results. This little boy was particularly shy but still intrigued by the camera. I couldn’t resist the expression on his face.
