...and a stream of conscioussness starting from Way's 200th picture and related comments and replies
"Originally from Laos, Lived in a refugee camp in Thailand for 4 years, now living in U.S. Having such an experience, I see things from different perspectives and appreciate more what I have now and try not to take things for granted"
growing up "in the soft cotton" (free translation from italian popular say..) we are often missing a meter to evalute problems, dramas...and we often take bulls..ts for dramas
Life is very unpredictable and it own way of playing out our destiny, my life would have been so different if I were to be in France or I could still be in Laos, riding on a water buffalo somewhere on a farm, instead of sitting here in front of a computer, complaining about how slow my internet is.
never give up the hope for something better...and never forget that fate could also have been much worse than it was....
It's a history for you with tears then and happiness now
same as above. the one who experienced suffering can really appreciate happiness
YES, I am living the American Dream. I have a decent job, own a house, okay the bank own most of it, but I can painted it pink if I wanted to. Make enough money to travel and explore our beautiful States and around the world and to be here sharing my experience with those who share the same interest. I couldn’t ask for more.
yes, life is made of problems, difficulties, but once you know what you want, you know how far you can go with your forces....when you are able to find the differences between what you can change/improve and what you have to accept and deal with....then you can find the right balance....and you really can't ask for more.
mais je pense que c'est très bien que les gens sachent
yes, it's good to know such a history....in order to avoid that all those people can be summarized into statistcs and numbers while they are - on the contrary - made of flesh and bones.
I see your puzzled face holding the board with #T-155671
Ii first recognized you when i wrote angshu's comment....well...the connection between this image and your person "gives" life to the whole composition...and those faces become "alive"..."pulsating"
Angkor ruins complex is full of those babies and kids…..sometimes they are selling stuffs for a couple of dollars, sometimes just begging.
Talking eyes…to tell me I was much luckier than this baby….to tell me my difficulties are much easier to overcome ….and telling me – in the end – that I am probably more fragile than he’s…although I’m 35 years old….
shot going to my themes Songs of Innocence...before they get experienced and falling deep into colourlessness

complimenti per il bellissimo scatto e la naturalezza con la quale hai ripreso questi occhi.
IL B&W ha fatto il resto,
un caro saluto
francio64 (39888) 2010-02-27 11:59
non capisco come una foto come questa è quasi orfana di commenti.
Per quel che mi riguarda, l'immagine è bellissima e molto espressiva.
Ottima la conversione in bianco e nero!
Personalmente io, ritengo opportuno farti i complimenti!

Un ritratto semplicemente fantastico, occhi profondi con un'espressione naturale e innocente di quelle che lasciano senza fiato, complimenti, ottimi i dettagli a la scelta del BW.

Ciao Silvio, Excellent portrait of this child. Very intense and sensitive. Certainly more effective and meaningful in the black and white mode. Thank you for your comments on my Swiss shot. I was thinking how nice it would be to drive that route twice a week, but then, I am sure the sameness would get boring too. Have a great Sunday. Roger

hai catturato una bellissima espressione dolce, gli occhi sono bellissimi anche se lasciano intravedere un pò di sofferenza.

Ah Silvio what a face - well taken.

Ciao Silvio, che un carino. Il B&N e superbe. You have captured perfectly this little boy's character. The image is beautifully lit and so sharp. The light in his eyes is marvellous. A nice thought for our friend Way Lim too. Congratulations and I wish you a beautiful Sunday.

Ciao Silvio. Espressione vera. Intensa e tenera. Più che una foto: una carezza.

i love this portrait

una immagine fantastica. Tra le mie immagini preferite rientrano i ritratti ai bimbi.
I loro tratti somatici sono dolci, armoniosi, incredibilmente teneri e gli sguardi, come dici tu, molto, molto espressivi.
Adoro questo sguardo, il bel dettaglio e la versione proposta in bianco e nero.
Un piacere per gli occhi, complimenti!

ein großartiges Portrait mit Augen voller Ausdruck, trotz dem jungen Alter. Schwarz-weiß ist fabelhaft gewählt.
Danke auch, dass du die Kommentare Ways zusammengestellt hast, richtig großartig.
Viele liebe Grüße nach Luzern

What a doll, looks at those beautiful deep dark eyes. Excellent portrait shot of real people in ordinary daily life. He looks a bit skeptical and bit concern.
I like the B&W shot. Classis!
And yes, this could have been me, maybe not as cute, but that mouth still wet from the saliva is definitely like me, alright.
Thanks Silvio, for such wonderful note using some of my responses and other’s comment, breaking it down to very helpful philosophy. It make us think, next time before we complain about our unfortunate lives, we should take a look around to see how many people around the world living in much worst condition, only than we realize how good we have it.
I thank you for your sensitivity and understanding.
