extended family. . .


i stole these pics from a sleeping african girl....
last night.
she had packed her extended family of dolls next to her...eight to be precise...all neatly lined up. no-one was sleeping except her.
they said they wouldn't tell. 
(that i was taking pictures). 

they're very kind, you see.

What a gorgeous pic! It looks as if it could have been taken a hundred years ago, and I don't mean just because of the gollies!

You have a very beautiful daughter :-)

Hi J.
Just found your blog today and started reading. Felt like i fell into a great book (and loved the photos). As I'm newly arrived in Arusha/TZ, it was a nice intro/distraction. (Boyfriends is working here, im just tagging along...). Plus, as a horseback rider (and horse owner), tall sporty chick, i felt connected to the advenurous side of you. Look forward to perhaps meeting before i head back to Toronto at the end of July.

Hi J, I just love this post you made. I don't have kids, but it made me want a little girl right there and then and it made me a little wistful despite knowing that's not on the cards right now. Beautiful post and one of the most emotive photographs I've ever seen. Thank you!
