Dressed To The NInes by phil decocco

We visited a Masai village in the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa, and the entire tribe welcomed us with ceremonial dancing and singing, and every adult was dressed in their finest. This woman, looking festive and gay, wore her best robes and what seemed like every piece of beaded jewelery she owned.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    both the Masai men and women wore bright, colorful garments, and of course, the beaded jewelry is an extra!
