Ethiopian Portriat Serries
« on: January 23, 2010, 09:23:49 AM »

Hello All,

I've been over here in Africa for a while now and I do a lot of work in development. As someone who enjoys taking photos, I've been able to take some photo along the way and capture some of the more touching moments.

I've put together some of the portraits I've enjoyed most not because the photos themselves but rather for the touching stories that follow along with them. I'm putting the series on here so you can see them and I've put down the links to the stories I've written so far. Hopefully I'll eventually write all the stories down before I start to get fuzzy on particulars, but unfortunately that sometimes happens...

Anywhoo, I hope you enjoy the photos and the stories as they come out. Please feel free to let me know how you feel about them (positive of negative).


Cheers,
- Michael

P.S. I have no idea if I can fix the thread title spelling... If someone knows how I would appreciate the hint

I especially like the 2nd one, mainly because of how much his watch is out of place, and the last one is really just sweet.
