Road from Dong Van to Meo Vac, on top of mountain Ma Pi Leng, North of Vietnam - 2009.
I just reach the top of the mountain with my motobike and stop to take a rest and admire the landscape....
This little boy was alone, apparently doing nothing special, apparently waiting for nothing.... We just talked some words as he do not know to speak Vietnamese, I take a rest, and I continue my road let him behind me.....

Although it is generally advised not to use wide angle shots of children from above, I think some shots like this are genuinely striking. His feet look very nice.

D habitude je n apprecie pas trop les portraits en cadrage de dessus, mais ici ca accompagne la solitude de l enfant et c est en ligne avec le sujet.
De plus le choix d une faible profondeur de champs en grand angle permet d isoler la tete et l effet de perspective accentue l effet.
Au final un portrait original et reussi.
