What do you think of Michael's photo?

  • Curious Jane

    What I see captured in this photo is the kind of uncomplicated and pure happiness that, most often, only the youngest among us have the luxury of experiencing.

      Thank you both for your comment. This portrait is of a traveler with her child… she is a warrior and protector. I wish you could see the rest of the series. Your are both right, the child was so happy, even playing with a clean empty plastic bottle on the street. The child was also well cared for. I was very honored to meet this strong woman.

    A stark reality most of us will never see or understand juxtaposed with the joyful innocence of childhood.
