Photographer's Note

For some of you may have seen similar shot on my gallery, I posted awhile back and took it off. This one is a very similar shot. It抯 better, I think.

The Masai are a very famous warrior tribe in Kenya. They live in small settlements of 8-15 huts per kraal. Their settlements are surrounded by a thornbush fence as an added form of protection. The two-inch long thorns of the thornbush are as sharp as barbed wire and the men are responsible for tying branches together to form the fence. In the evening, the cattle, goats, and other domestic animals are brought inside the kraal for protection against wild animals.

This is a typical image of a Masai warrior, one of a tall and lean man clutching a spear in one hand with his red cloth wrapped around his waist or over his shoulders. The life of the traditional Masai revolves entirely around their cattle. They believe God entrusted his cattle to them; consequently, their wealth is measured by the number of cattle they have acquired.

Cropped, lighten, 10% saturation, sharpen slightly.
