Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,
beautiful, beautiful boy,
Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,
beautiful, beautiful boy.
- John Lennon

This photo, so close and face to face with the native boy, makes us feel the deep sorrow for the hundreds of thousands of kids and other people who were lost to the waves and winds of the ocean. My deep sympathy and condolences. I am with your prayer.

joining the prayer... nice angel face, good light and exposure, the grain looks like the result of over sharpening

beautiful, beautiful boy, "
Un visage d'enfant : c'est un beau symbole de vie et d'espoir pour marquer sa solidarité au peuple Birman encore une fois dans la douleur.

Wow. This is such a powerful and yet sad picture given the recent circumstances. Your note is very good and I think quite appropriate in this situation. To be honest, I dont really have anything more to say apart from 'Thanks'.

Heartfelt congratulations for this superb portrait, so close, those eyes looking straight at you in confidence. Beautiful rendering of the skin, details and bokeh. And heartfelt prayers for the survivors. Don't know what more to say.

A fine portrait with Lennon's beautiful words to his son.
A fitting tribute Benny.
