A young Ecuadorian girl is carrying her baby brother on her back. Such a sight is not uncommon in South America, where kids as young as six or seven attend to their younger siblings needs while the parents work.
This is a scan from a 35mm slide.

    Aww! Cute! A wonderful candid shot! The colors are really great in this, especially because they weren’t planned :)

    For a scan it has very good color saturation.
    Did you have to touch up with Photoshop?
    I’ve scanned film photos before and I always have dust to get rid of.
