This young woman belongs to the Himba tribe famous for their striking outfits and hairdos. I entered one other portrait of a Himba girl before

Himba are mostly located in the north of Namibia near Angolan border, but we didn't plan to go there during our trip in June 2018 (it is pretty far, and we didn't have enough time). But driving in the middle of the country, we came across a small trading outpost and several adjacent huts. Of course we stopped! I managed to chat and bribe my way into a couple of huts (you can see the girl holding a piece of a chocolate candy bar :)) and take some photos. The narrow entrance to the hut outside the frame on the left (there are no doors!) made for the beautiful lighting.

Thank you for the blue!
