Photo Hunt: Hands

The Massais make fire by hand without matches.  Although still living in primitive abode made of cow dung, it is uncertain whether the tribe still actually use this mode of fire making.  Noted as a vanishing tribe, the Massais struggle to keep their culture as modern influences lurk around their surroundings.  More on the Massais here.

  2. I love this shot. I so admire groups that hang on their traditions and fight tooth and nail not to be dragged into a questionable future. Thanks for visiting my photo, see you next time.
