Innocence by phil decocco
Clear

In Northern Thailand, near Chiang Mai, I visited some hill tribe villages and this cherubic child sat quietly and looked as intently at us as was possible. For me, he personified innocence itself

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    :D I don’t think he was really innocent, remark that he was taking notes about you on his smartphone :D

  • Adnane,
    you’re so right and very observant. As he sat there, from moment to moment he’d put this little toy up to his ear and talk into it. Like father like son!

    oh, yes innocence
    and though such serious eyes
    watching our world

  • so true, he seemed to be both curious and cautious in meeting outsiders from his tribe.
