This was a hard choice for me because I just returned from Ethiopia and photographed many beautiful faces. This one however came to mind first.
We had just returned from our meetings in Awassa/Shashemene and were back in Addis. On the way to our hotel we passed this woman sitting alongside the road. We had brought our leftovers from lunch and wanted to give them to her so Dawit and I turned the van around to see if she wanted them. She was very sweet and had kind eyes. I had Dawit ask if it was okay for me to take her picture and she was so kind to allow it.
