Just a smile from the Marsabit desert for you on this first week of 2012.
This was not a legendary trip to Marsabit, but it was a good trip. No stuck vehicles or flat tires or going deep into the desert. But we were able to make it to Marsabit town, which was cut off to us by flooded roads on our last trip. There will be more about this trip later, but for now I wanted to share two photos of smiles I shared. This woman was so full of life -I hope her smile pulls you in too.
Meet Lily. I met her at a well and her smile captured me. When I asked to take her picture, she looked at her clothes and felt embarrassed – she was dirty as she just come from working in the fields. But, I said, your face is beautiful. She agreed to the portrait. I am glad to say that seeing her portrait on the view screen of my camera also made her smile.
