Today I celebrate my first year here on TE, so I thought of something suitable for this anniversary. This small child we found near one of the souvenir stalls in the middle of Angkor Thom in Cambodia. His mother was a street vendor, and while she was working her son was sleeping in this 'sleeping bag'. You'll find a close-up in the workshop.
On today's occassion I'd like to thank all of the visitiors to my gallery, especially the frequent ones. Your comments and critiques give me a lot of ideas, but most of all so much satisfaction. Thanks and hope to see you not only here, but on the road as well!

This is really excellent, Michal. Good focus on the sleeping child's face and lovely red colour.
One year on TE...I hope you're not suggesting with this shot that it's time for a break!

congratulations! I wish you a long life in this site. This is a lovely shot. The sleeping child is definitely a nice theme. Very good framing and well chosen point of view. Great job!

Good subject and focus on the child face. I would have removed the top part, because I think that black blurred tree trunks and white sky are distracting, and also the left part including the stone .

gratulacje za twoje 1. roku w trekearth.
I also saw similar scenes from Cambodia...and I like this shot....that baby looks so harmless and sweet...maybe dreaming about a better and easier life...while the mama is struggling for surviving.
PS: this was my shot to celebrate my 1st year

That's a great idea Michal! You, one year on TE being similar to an one year old child.. very clever!
Also a nice picture, very good POV and composition!
I wish you the best of all the rest!

Congratulation for your first anniversary on TE, specially for your contribution with pictures of bajaus, whose the so vulnerable existence is rarely addressed here!
This picture is perfectly suitable for such an occasion, although I am not sure of how old this kid is. But the photo is lovely. The colors are good, and there is a lot of tenderness in it. I have used a similar system for my daughter in India, and I find it great! When there is not much wind, that's the best to take advantage on every single little breath of air!

That is soooo sweet! I like that you have taken the shot through the netting of the hammock and I like his little toes sticking out through the holes. Nice soft dappled light too.
Congratulations for your 1 year.
