Splendid photo. Technically this is a beautiful shot and also I love the way you made this portrait.
Thanks for sharing.

this is a lovely portrait! Shame the animal's eyes are not in focus but still very significant.

this is a delightful portrait of both boy and mongoose.Mongoose as well as boy seem to be looking directly into your lens.The mongoose has a face like a polecat andbut paws almost like hands.
I wonder if the boy calls his pet Rikki Tikki Tavi after Rudyard Kipling's story of that title?

A great oldie, Luca. Heavy light on the pet and the boy's fingers, but it works. Great blurred background too. Very in-your-face!

splendida - il doppio sguardo, del ragazzo e della mangusta (perdona l'ignoranza se sbaglio il nome dell'animaletto), sono davvero magnetici. e la qualita' dello scatto e' (dopo tanti anni) fantastica.
