This was definitely one of my favourite photos from my Burundi trip. It comes from a set of photos taken at a Sunday Catholic mass, which interestingly enough, produced several of my favourite shots. It isn’t often that these kids have the opportunity to see foreigners, and it was quite apparent by how many of them would stare at us. There were two girls in particular who were completely captivated by our presence, but truth be told, I was just as captivated by them. I had already taken several photos of this girl, but when she switched poses and put her hand over her head like this, I just had to take another.
