Kilwa Kivinje is one of those places that'll take you back in time. The Stone Houses are in varying degrees of deterioration - that coupled with colorful windows leads to some interesting textures. I was walking around town and this particular scene caught my attention because of it's natural layering - sand in the foreground, stone buildings in the middle and the palm trees in the background. I was walking away from the scene and happened to look back when I saw three kids run across the way. I was barely able to get the camera out and take the picture but I was happy to catch the scene.
