En’toto Mountain, June 2010

I made this image while taxiing En’toto Mountain in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The hazy backdrop off the hillside provided for a clean blown out background and the overcast sun provided saturated colors. These boys were goat herders who fashioned whips from Eucalyptus vines.  Rather than ask for money, one of them wanted my pen so he could practice his English.
