Salam Sayeed. I hope the little fellow has recovered. He does look fragile although, I would think he belongs to a tough race. These people, nomads, remind me of birds that sing personal songs to their Creator (whatever his or her name) and live unnoticed lives and die unnoticed in the vastness of deserts or grasslands, mourned only by their little clan. A price to pay for a life spent close to the Creator, a life close to the heartbeat of creation.Be safe little bird. It is a sensitive portrait Sayeed. regards. Klaudio.[+]

Hi Gert. fascinating physiognomies in this country which was and is on the crossroad of civilizations and various hordes of invading armies. beautiful quality considering it is from a scan - one of your finest in terms of colour and detail retention. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Elaine. My heart goes to all the indigenous peoples who had been robed of their heritage and patrimony by the "conquistadors" whether Spanish, Anglo, Slav etc,who have grabbed the seats of power and grow fat on what was stolen and continues to be stolen. What future is there for such children, these have nots, who have nothing compared to the standard classrooms of the haves/ Suffer the little children... and all that. What a hypocritical and selfish world we live in. This photo has pained me. Klaudio.

Zdravo Aleksandar. Upadne boje i dobar POV.Neznam jeli su potrebne bile kutija i druge razne stvari u pozadini. Je bi stavio povrce u kofi a mliko na drugom mistu. Takodjer nekako presvitlo je doli na desno. Inace, dobra ideja pokazati sto jesensko bogatsvo. Pozdrav i zadovoljna sedmica. Klaudio.[+]

Hi John. An emotive image when coupled with the thorough note. One has cause to pause and think about the folly of mankind and the predilection to take up arms for both the worldly and heavenly kingdoms and looking at the news, nothing has changed much. Wonderful clarity thanks to your expertise and soft light.Regards. Klaudio.[+]

Hi John.I was admirig this wildlife shot and thought how lucky of you to get such a perfect closeup in the wild and then I noticed the jesses.Still an owl and a tree hollow are the ingredients that make it a top bird shot, especially when i can admire all the exquisite details of plumage, bark and moss. Well done. Best wishes. Klaudio..
