EYES OF THE OMO VALLEY ~
STEVE WALLACE, 58, PHYSICIAN, YUMA, AZ
“Visiting the tribes in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, I stopped at the Omo Child Home (omochild.org) in Jinka. I noticed this beautiful girl with big eyes looking out from a dark hallway. As I started taking pictures of her, she followed me with her eyes as I took photos from several angles. We did not have a common language, so I gave her no instruction.”
