My mother needs me
To sway amongst the cattle and the dirt,
I am a portrait for all these people’s desires
Shooting away with their lenses and their trade.
Some try to sneak a shot but I find em’
My hand reaches out
200 rupees please
In case you didn’t know
That’s $4.17 cents,
I’m worth it.. Aren’t I?

I am artist always becoming…
Endless ideas pull me forward towards endless creation.

    beautiful capture……these children must work hard to get money (which I find sad) but they definitely are “photogenic”……I enjoyed your text……

    Thank You Wendy. The children are still that, children, they enjoy you when you smile and give them some rupees so I don’t think they know what we do about their condition.. but wait we are coming to let them know!:0)

    What a stunning portrait, and what a beautiful child. You can see in her eyes how much older she is than her years.

  • Rubes, she was a trip,, I watched her and her sister for hours do their thing with all the photags it was a treat to get the shots I did and she never knew.. I adore her
