The countryside around Tafraoute in South Morocco, although very dry is beautiful. In May local people are working in the fields. Womenand children like in Europe a long time ago are still working very hard.
I couldn't talk to this family, but their smile was better than 1000 words. A very nice memory !

Hi Michel, a lovely timeless image, it does indeed seem like it could've been at the turn of the century (except for the can :) ), the sun'burnt colors also add to this effect. Nice eye contact with this family, TFS and welcome to TE, Betty

Excelent shoot. I like you take the time to interact with the people, and not just shoot around. Cheers,

Very nice, Michel--they have a very traditional look, and they're engaged in a very traditional activity. You caught a great pose with the girl on the left looking shy and the mother trying to get the boy to look or smile. It's all very natural and pleasant. The colors are a bit off, though, maybe too much magenta. Regards, Ken.
