15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

The Malinke Fête de la Mare is, among other things, one day a year where people can fish in certain sacred marshes. Shortly after the whistle was blown signaling the fishing could begin, a boy pauses for a portrait. (Not pictured is his basket of fish - he knew what he was doing).
