I'm going to do a series someday on "found lighting." and "MacGuyver lighting." I don't carry a tripod and I don't use lights.

I love it when Mom Nature or Dad Manmade helps out and I can see something in a new way.

This is Ida, who was staying with her mom at our house in Mahanga, Kenya. We were watching her grandmother cook over a traditional fire (Nicaraguan friends will know it, it's the exact same as Ocotal) and I shot her portrait with "shade" as my white balance and got red.

So I went with it, and used the afternoon sun coming in through the door. It was very very rustic in there; I also dig the electrical outlet showing how modernization has changed things.
