Maasai Modesty - Tanzania
Upon her realization, an hour into our homestay, that I had brought my camera along, she rushed us out of the hut made entirely of tree branches and goat dung to take pictures of everything she could. But as soon as the camera turned on her, her eyes cast downward, her way of showing modesty and dignity in her Maasai culture. Flies coated her scalp, and her brilliantly-colored clothing was dingy from wear and work, but her joyful spirit was contagious. I left that day with hundreds of photos taken by the true residents of the land.
