The T-shirt says it all. Sapa. A real gem of an area in SE Asia. Developed, yet village life just around the corner. A little bit of everything, no matter what you like. People, culture, food, drink, architecture... Sapa has it all.

A beautiful picture of this little boy with those lovely bright eyes. Perfectly simple background that does not distract from the portrait.

a superb candid portrait
Everything in his dirty T shirt, his posture, his smile and his eyes
Just great, no need to comment on technical quality
have a nice evening

Welcome back, John!
What a wonderful portrait! I just love his innocent and curious eyes looking at your camera. So well framed! Even the t-shirt situates us:)!

I totally agree John. Sapa is a mixture which has something from a variety of things...
The pose is natural, the light in his eyes is admirable.
Would you like to contribute to the Sapa Theme?
