Photo Details

  • Title: Machete
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Description: I was walking around on the top of a hill overlooking the Maasai Mara and a young boy was herding his family’s cows. I would assume that my camera amused him. He began to follow me around and quietly giggle after seeing the scenery show up on the back of my camera. A little while later I knelt to take a photo and I felt breathing on the back of my neck. I was frightened at first, but I soon realized that it was the young boy with the machete, he began laughing when he got a good look at the scenery on the back of my camera. Because I don’t speak Swahili, I gestured to photograph him and he nodded. After making his portrait, I showed him the result. Right when he viewed the result he began laughing, that was the most joy that I have ever seen in someone’s face.
