ah, to have the life of one of these Akha babies. not too bad, probably...
The Akha hill tribe usually live high up in the hills and they traditionally grew a lot of opium, though in Thailand this has been replaced by coffee, at least in the area i visited. a really nice coffee, too. This village had a magnificent hilltop view and I snapped this picture at sunset while the local women were busy setting up stalls of their handicrafts. They make beautiful things using seeds, beads, metal coins and embroidery.

I relaly like this composition. The two babies with their backs to each other but looking at the same thing. You composed it perfectly because if you had included anymore of the Akha women, they probably would have been too distracting and would have drawn attention away from the babies. Nice job. JP

Hi, a nice catch here, Emily. Something unusual and you must be lucky to have the table there to connect the two children. It helps to give a nice eye flow. Impressive shot!! Regards.

I love this framing! Two opposites with the same cute faces...love the color and the rectangular motif. Very good image.
