    Hi Noel. Child or no child, it is a powerful image and your reading of it gives it current meaning. Yes, I see what you are saying. in Australia, a land where many of the descendants are of Irish stock and others of Southern and Central European, people who with those of Vietnamese and other Asian backgrounds, should sympathise with and speak for the refugees, we have SILENCE when children are held behind barbed wire in the desert. You mention many reasons for the indifference in Europe (and Australia) and do touch on xenophobia, but I am not going to beat about the bush, I will call it racism from which comes hatred and indifference and the view that a life of one of THEM is less important and as for their aspirations, dreams, hopes- all of these can be dismissed as being inferior to ours. In Australia the news do not give us human interest stories on refugees, we do not see their faces, their tears, their despair- we lump them together as people who break rules, who jump queues and hence who are not desirable to live amongst us.
    My forefathers fled Albania, fleeing Ottoman persecution when they refused to convert, they depend don the generosity of the Venetian Republic and settled far north in Dalmatia, generations later my family became refugees from Communism in Yugoslavia, first in France, then Italy before we ended up at the bottom of the globe.This country is made up mainly from people who fled or who were forced to come here, yet our foreign minister is proud to announce that she will, if asked, give advice to Europe on how to protect its borders! Say no more.

    Hi Miguel. I realised you are a newcomer to TE so welcome. An elegant facade decorated and painted with style and good taste. Even the curtains tell us that the owners are refined people.Regards. Klaudio.

    Hi Miguel. Well, I never knew about this special attitude towards cats. i knew that dogs are considered as unclean, like pigs and one doesn't see many dogs in urban areas. I like the costume of the woman on the left. A zoom lens would have given you another dimension for a photograph. Lovely light. Regards. Klaudio.

    Magnificent, intimidating, putting us all into proper scale- little ants scurrying along and Nature's strings can wipe us all out like it happened in Nepal. Regards. Klaudio.

    Will's workshop does make a difference and in time you will become more aware of what to do, but as is, it still conveys a mood and arouses sentiments. Wherever there is stone, there are houses made from stone. What a view the inhabitants did have while living there! Lovely Chinese poem. Namaste. Klaudio.

    Namaste. I do find your gallery interesting and unique. pity it is not visited much. This is a fine photo an although we cannot see his face, we can see how engrossed he is in his work. All those keys forming his humble display are also indicative of his modest lifestyle. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Paul,
    Welcome back, it's nice to know you were not among those that left the site.
    This is a terrific composition, largely thanks to the many colorful umbrellas (and their owners), seen on a diagonal under the cherry blossoms. The people add so much substance to the natural beauty of the pink trees. It's the kind of photo I would have loved to take. The two workshops are almost equally fine.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
