Another shot out of the old shoebox.

This one is one of my favorites, but then again i might be biased...

The photo shows my brother Wolbo in friendly contact with one of the Himba youngsters. Recently got permission to post the shot.
The kids were all joy and inquisitive, i guess that can be expected around the world. Unfortunatly with the elderly it was a complete different story, no exchange of smiles there...not through lack of trying.

The pure and authentic exchange of friendliness makes this shot special to me.

hi edwin.
beautiful message comming out of the image.
a special capture, thank you for sharing.

Wow! It's indeed a lovely moment well captured, Edwin. I like it a lot. I'm glad you asked permission, I think it's proper. I like the intimate sweet moment between them. You framed them neatly in the picture.
Freddie :)

This image made me feel good. If art is to be measured by how the viewer of the art feels upon viewing it then this is truly a masterpiece.
