#344 Smile through Tears | 破涕为笑
When I first saw this boy on an open field of a tribe, he was crying. Others were singing and dancing behind. Thinking he might feel left out, I walked to him and showed him the photos and videos I just took of the dancing group.
I asked him if he wanted to see himself on the screen too (not really verbally asking but all gestures here, since we didn’t understand each other’s language), and he started to smile and agreed. So I clicked my camera, and pointed to the screen. Seeing his own amusing expression, the boy’s smile turned broader, with tears in his eyes still. :)
At that moment, he was sitting on a beautifully crafted wooden bench, which the tribe people also put on their heads as decoration. In my photo below, you can see this type of bench on the girl’s head:
The girls were actually in the dancing group behind, and I probably showed the boy their photo. I posted this photo of the three girls last year in the Truthseeking Thursday of Photogames, but didn’t give much information then (cause it’s truth seeking of course ;)). These 2 photos were taken in the south of Ethiopia, bordering Kenya. The head image is my entry for @ntopaz’s Stock Photo contest themed Human. My camera settings:
Hope you enjoy it. Feel free to join the fun too!
