I was visiting a Masai village.The adult Masai and tourists were dealing in trinkets and photos. This young guy caught my attention.

    What a sweet image! I love the expression on the little one’s face! Curiousity, aprehension, distrust maybe? Regardless – priceless shot! Marita

  • Thank you ! His parents were lined up for the tourists selling trinkets. I found him more interesting.

    Very well done. I would have been tempted to get a close up… but this shot captures the whole atmosphere. Good one, Michael.

  • Thank you Gary, this shot was taken awhile ago in my 35 mm film days. Remember those? I had limited equipment and I was shy about taking pictures of people. So I did not want to walk up and scare him and took the shot from a distance.

    I think the whole composition adds mood and atmosphere, almost like he has been abandoned
