Award Shortlist   


After meeting the lovely old lady I posted yesterday, with my friend Loc we continued walking around Darahoa. On the way we followed this lady and her little boy who were taking their cows back home or to the fields. He kept turning around, looking very alarmed. When his Mum finally turned around she had a really lovely smiling eyes (V2).

Thank you for yesterday’s comments. It is strange how we can be moved by a face/eyes of someone we’ve never met.

Hoping this will make you smile. Have a good evening,

V1 large does it for me. Although this is an excellent image and shows the surrounding environment, I wonder if a second close crop image is also in there?
I did a close crop but did not like it so did not use it. JNC

That adorable face looks so very worried....I'm sure in his mind he is protecting his mother from those awful strangers.
