Little red masai boy by RoieG Little red masai boy by RoieG
Taken at the Masai village in the Serengeti, Tanzania.
Their houses are very small and made of mud, cow droppings and straw.
Their civilazation is so different from ours.

I love the title, the fairy tale quality it brings here. But I also love the fact how real this is. No posing, it's a piece of life from such a different culture. It's always exciting to experience something new through photographs. Here I like the simple colours and the composition. How he just is there, as himself, and makes me wonder what he's thinking. Really nice work.
