I took this photo while visiting a nomadic Berber family who live in the Sahara Desert near the small Moroccan village of Merzouga. After I took this photo, she got up to walk, and it was only at this time that I realized that she had been holding her baby under her scarf.

Hello Linda (again),
What a compelling Portrait of the Berber woman. She is covered from head to toe, revealing only her eyes. But here you've accomplished a dramatic effect by placing the left eye of the woman right on the vertical centerline. In 1998 it was discovered by the English born psychologist, Christopher Tyler, that in almost all great portraits through the ages — including Leonardo's "Mona Lisa" and Rembrandt's numerous self-portraits — the vertical centerline passes through one eye. It can be trailing eye or the leading eye, but always one eye.
