Ethiopia 3

Driving from Asmara-Eritrea to Addis Ababa-Ethiopia, we passed a group of women carryng their earthenware water jugs in their backs. This one had such beauty, rpide, and dignity in her face in spite of her clothing.

    i am a research associate and communications specialist with a research organization outside of atlanta. they focus primarily on ethnographic and worldview studies. my speciality, however, is in communication: traditional, etc., observing what communicates and what doesn't, the flow of information, non-formal and traditional education, entertainment, etc., with a mjor emphasis on oral cultures. it's all very interesting and i love it. gives me great opportunity to pursue my passion for photography.

    That sounds fascinating - and a great reason to travel (and take photographs!).

    I think all your close-up portraits have great qualities.
    Well done!
