Three country boys have their photo taken for the first time

Many of my friends saw this picture of me and the boys on Facebook in January and loved the image which was show by friend and photographer Angi Hofer. DSC00985

Angi and I went to a livestock market in Axum , Ethiopia where we would find, as we did in may places, that many locals had never seen foreigners and man had never had their photo taken.DSC00988They are so shy.

  1. I love how something we take for granted is such a delight to these young boys. We forget that we don’t need to raise thousands of dollars to change someone’s life. Something as simple as a photo can change a boy’s day. Keep up the good work!
