Who Are These Guys?

  1. Given the body art, I'd say they're the Maasai.

  2. And you've actually encountered Masai, Greg?

    You realise that there are more than Masai in Kenya--there are Kikuyu, Luhya, Luo, Kalenjin, Kamba, Kisii, Meru, and other ethnicities as well.

    Brent Stritn documented the warfare in Virunga National Park, which is in the Congo. These could be Congolese warriors--especially since the background is lush, which Kenya is not. It's rather arid.

    Africa is a pretty big place< Greg. You'd know that if you had a brain.

    1. Neither place, I found out where this was taken, but I'm hoping the photographer stops by with the answer.

    3. Yes, Laci, I am aware of the information that you shared. Thanks for demonstrating that your dismissive attitude makes you look arrogant and stupid.

      Given that one of the men is wearing plaid, they could be Scotsmen.

  3. Another possibility is that these are Andaman Islanders.

  4. Greg, I look stupid?

    This coming from someone who is the first to answer when the notice that you will look stupid by making a comment here is plainly put up in clear sight? Nothing like giving you an invitation to make an idiot of yourself and being more than willing to take it--eh Greggy?

    You could indeed have asked the photographer, but no, you would rather say that the desert dwelling mMasai are coming out of a river.

    As I said, Greg, you love to show your ignorance, then you dig yourself in even deeper.

    It's really hard for you to call someone else stupid.

    Especially when there is a simple solution, which you are too dim to take.

    And nothing like the old ad hominem to show that you are a loser, Greggy.

    But, you knew that as It's all part of the gun loon--we're a bunch of losers--persona.

    1. "Greg, I look stupid?"

      Yes Bang Bang Shrimp, you do look stupid. But then I think that of everyone who dresses their prissy little dogs in leather jackets and believes that they have healing powers.

  5. Laci, you truly are the most pathetic person I know. It gives you pleasure to fling insults at people you know little about. You must be struggling to fill in your inadequacies. You will let us know when you have something worthwhile to say, right?

  6. Let's note that despite Laci's claims to intelligence and knowledge, he didn't offer his answer.

  7. From the artist himself, received by e-mail:

    "The Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia before it became popular. Brent"
