    It's getting dark in the Ethiopian Omo valley. A young Hamar boy is watching his older brothers participating in the Evangadi courtship dance. He is not old enough, but one day when he is all grown up.... he will be the one jumping.

    Fan tab! It tells a good story with the little boy just standing there as the "onlooker".

    I love how the background images are blurred, which brings the young boy into the main focus. The perspective is fantastic and is well suited for your story. Beautiful capture.

    AND on being included in the Travelogue Story!  Very well-deserved!  I love the way the light seems to outline the boy.
