Black and White Version.

As I wandered around, immersing myself amongst the locals of the beautiful Ethiopian township of Lalibela, I came across this elderly gentleman. He had just come out of his home, near ‘Bet Giyorgis’ (yet another fascinating church situated in this historical region). Fly swatter in hand, he looked up at me.
I photographed him, as I thought he had an interesting face, with such kind eyes.

Canon 1/200, f6.3, 100.
