A sepia version of a previous upload before being able to upload large.

This was taken on our honeymoon to Egypt in April. It was taken in the middle of the desert at a tourist coach stop where we were surrounded by the local children - ranging from this little girl - she was about 4 years old up to teenage girls and boys all with their own baby goat, baby camel or baby donkey (sorry I only know what a baby goat is called!!)

This girl was so tiny, she barely came past knee height. She really struggled to hold onto that little goat, but she didn't put it down once.

We gave them some Egyptian pounds for taking the shot then it was back on the coach again for another 3 hours journey through the desert - destination Luxor Airport (I'm getting all nostalgic now…)

Thanks for taking a look.

Hi Lyns. this is a bit different. Nice strong backlighting and the girls expression tells a story. Looks good in sepia too.

Hi Lynsey

I really like the expression and the story but I think this is the 1st of yours that i have not been to keen on, i am so unsure of the bright hightlight in the background and i dont feel the colour suits the subject. I think it would have been so much stronger in a grade 5 B&W then i think it would have done very well, but id still have to remove the very bright highlight.
Regards
Tony

Well it's not fine art and it certainly is'nt beautiful, but it tells a story and tugs at my old heart-strings.

That "little girl" looks like an old man with a goatee beard, and her eyes (in the large version) are so deep and imploring.

It makes you realise how lucky we are to live in good old England.

Well done for loading this Lyns. Variety is the spice of life, and you're one spicey lady Smile

It's really heart wrenching to see the children here. You're torn in two directions - give them money then their parents keep them off school to go begging for more, or don't give them anything and maybe they go hungry tonight!! It just makes you put your whole life into perspective and makes you feel guity at how materialistic we are and how much we have to be grateful for.

Stumbled on to your portfolio after checking out the "Monday one hour challenge". You have an excellent portfolio all of which have recieved the recognition of your peers. This one was just begging for the last vote and the story swung it for me. Another RC for the collection well done.

Great shot, although without knowing the background I would have titled it "Mommy can I keep him?"....

The story behind it adds another dimension tho!

not sure how I missed this one on the gallery. Nice piece of travel photography. Background looks a bit burnt out, but given the likely conditions that shouldn't detract from a good picture.
