The Face of the Bajau Laut
This is the one photo on my shot list that had been eluding me till today. The Bajau women are known to wear a mixture of rice powder and a yellow spice that they apply on their faces as a sunscreen. It gives them a look that is unique to this area. Today I was fortunate to find a young lady willing to model this homemade cosmetic for me. Lesson learned: never give up on your shot list.
