During our trip in Kenya, we visited a Masai Village where I was able to get these shots.

One of the first things our guide told us was not to photograph the Masai that we see walking around - they don't like it as they feel that by photographing them, you steal piece of their soul. However, if we fork out $20 entrance fee to go in to the Masai Village we could photograph as much as we liked! :D

I agree, great colors on the first one but love the composition and expression in the second! Very nicely done...
