Masai Mara, Kenya. July, 2009.

Canon 400D
Canon 28-135mm
f/5.6, 1/160s, ISO 400
RAW. Processed in PS CS4

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.

    what a perfect child… beautiful capture… why do they all have flies… :)

  • Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed these. And I suppose it’s because the Masai people are cattle herders (so lots of…effluent around), plus it’s extremely dry (drought conditions), so the flies try to find any moisture they can, whether that be sweat, or even tears.
