    Again, lovely expression. Love the the light hitting his hand…I love hands! They say so much:)

  • Hands are supremely expressive, as your own pictures demonstrate.

    A simple yet such an emotive and thought provoking shot

  • Less is often more, and simple can be more complex.

    Wonderful portrait.. very sad reality, I hope he has people looking after him..

  • He’s looked after, more or less, by neighbors and relatives, but he’s on his own far too much for a boy this young. I very much appreciate your response. Thanks. And your own work is stunning, I must add.

    STUNNING !!!!!!

  • Hey JudyBJ, I am hugely flattered by your responses to my work – flattered because you are such a brilliant artist yourself, as I have discovered today by perusing your gallery. I will be making return trips soon to savor your pictures at greater length, and there is so much to savor. Again, thanks.

    wonderful photojournalism — my favorite kind of imagery…

  • Yes, I am inclined toward both artistic and photojournalistic approaches to scenes and subjects and pictures like this are the result. No reason art and journalism can’t mix, I figure. I very much appreciate your response.
