I was staying with a Himba family in Northern Namibia. During my stay I developed a close friendship with one of the families daughters, Kawnedape. Every morning I would rise before dawn to photograph the morning murmurs through out the village. Regardless how early I rose, Kawnedape would have already beaten me as she began to set about her mornings duties and she would always be closely followed by her little goat that bleated as it followed her around the village in the early morning light. I wanted an image that would always remind me of these early mornings and Kawnedape's goat.
