Kids with Buddha statues

The area around Kawgun Cave in Kayin State, Myanmar (Burma) can be a bit of a maze with many nooks and crannies to explore. Here, some kids were larking around some of the Buddha status, and I captured two of them having fun. Photo taken in December 2014.

Man and Shirt, Omo Valley, Ethiopia

In the Omo Valley, Ethiopia. I was exploring a Hamar village trying to take photos of village life. As I prepared to take photos, this young man automatically tried to remove his Mercedes Benz top as he assumed that I might think that the shirt wasn’t “authentic”. But I indicated to him that the shirt was OK; if that is what he normally wore then that was plenty authentic to me, and plenty interesting enough!

Himba man

We were staying right up next to the Angolan border in northern Namibia. Great views of the river there. This Himba man sat next to a boulder by the river, not that far from Epupa Falls. He’s smiling now, but he was worried about the crocodiles!
