The shyness of this little Datoga boy is evident as he stands between two matron women from the village. Tanzania

This image consistently brings back vivid memories of a Maasai village I visited on the outskirts of Amboseli, Kenya. I love the juxtaposition of the vibrant colors the villagers were clothed in with the starkness of the landscape in this very dry region situated in the rain shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

As the afternoon progresses we embark on a journey in search of flamingos. We are a bit late in the season as it is June and the onset of the dry season therefore the playa lake is receding at a hurried pace. So we must cross a wide span of salt flats to even get a glimpse of flamingos evident on the horizon. Our journey does not attain our original intent; instead we are fortunate to experience a great afternoon finding the beauty in this stark yet lovely place. Tanzania
