Two bathing twins
their seductions techniques
so powerful and innate
that all the African childrens
have in their own.
How many times
they made me smile?
How many times
they amazed me
with the shine
of an immense genuine joy
sparkling in their eyes…
this happiness was produced
by simple toys
like a stone,
a piece of wood
or a leaf…
no videogames, electric machines,
cellphones and dolls’ houses…
Luckily in Africa
happiness for kids,
it’s still a simple thing!

magnifique photo, le cadre, le cadrage , la lumière, tout est parfait
quels regards, tous les enfants du monde le découvre avec cette avidité même s'ils sont nés du mauvais côté de la barrière
ces photos nous rappellent l'injustice du monde et m'interpellent fortement moi qui vit en Europe...

Great portrait of these cute little twins, I like the expression on their faces, one is smiling and one is so serious. Great shot, I feel a little sad they're living in those life conditions. Great sharpness, focus and color.

Excellent portrait of those two Gasy children. I love above all the expression on their faces. Very good sharpness and DOF. I like the colours as well. I go back to Mada within one week,this island is a real treasure!

Hello Luca, beautiful light in here. It doesn't take much to make a child smile and feel happy, since they have a faculty of adaptation that is far stronger than any adult. Perhaps because their past is more recent, hence they have less souvenirs to mourn about. I like the two couples.

I remember well your first image of the nice kids.This one with a wider view and the boys in another pose is great too.
I think Aldo is doing some funny things to get theit attention and avoid theit view at your camera.Great shot.

sentivo la mancanza dei tuoi splendidi ritratti ed eccomi accontentato: che immagine piena di poesia!
Hellas (6845) 2007-05-23 8:05
this image is so wonderful! Children love water so much! They seem to be so happy playing with it and don't care about the clearness of the basin. Our children would never have a bath in a basin like that but I wonder if they are so happy as them here. The exposure is very well done. Congratulations!

Ancora più bella della "gemella" postata un pò di tempo fa...
Allora, sei pronto per il Pakistan?
Sono proprio curioso di sapere dove andrai!
oochappan (16688) 2007-05-28 15:09
very pleasant those twins, the colored buckets yellow and red enhance this copple excellent towards the neutral textured background slighly fading in OOF, good functional technique.
Gerrit (49920) 2007-05-28 19:49
fantastic picture. The light and composition are excellent and the capture is delicious.
angelsimon (2466) 2007-06-05 6:12
A great study of happiness. It is incredible how they are happy with a piece of wood or a stone like you day. Our occidental children has too much and they doesn`t enjoy it. Yes, I remember when I was a child: I was happy with a box and a cord. It was my car, my lorry, my dog, my little house, my store and a lot of things more. It was imagination. Children today has not imagination and they need a lot of things to play. I think that the the guilty arethe parents and the consumer society.
Well, yuour picture is very nice and full of tenderness. Two children are as small as those bowls. A very good composition with wonderful colors. Congratulations and thanks for share.

Beautiful image .. such a range of expression on their two faces .. their innocence in this place of dirt and old jugs is a really provocative addition to their joy.

romanaa (7966) 2008-01-11 11:00
fantastic picture. I wonder what do the kids star at - so different expressions in their faces. They are so cute. I love the old buckets too - great colour contrast.
