After market, saturday noon walk at an elevation 2500m above sea-level in Lalibela, Abyssinia. The market is a stone throw away from the 12th century carved out of rock Cross-shaped church Bete Giyorgis.
I have never met (anybody) with a smile so beautiful and full of life like this market boy when I looked through the viewfinder. We didn't speak each others languages so I didn't know what he was saying to me because I don't speak Amharic.
He breathed so much life into my camera, for a moment I believed my (shutter count) shall be paused forever. We were just the two of us because all other traders shift all their herds, goods to the next makert in the next township so they leave by foot soon after this market ends.
