A few members of TE have some interest for my shots of central america and said that my comments are a little short..they are right.
here a shot of a premature child ,he was 1050 gramms , future for this child was not sure at all, but he won,because 6 months later he was alive.
The(nice) nurse takes care of the baby how as possible,not many water as you can see.
Water and wood are the most important things for those people.
I took this shot in the "hospitalito" (little hospital),from where i submited a few shots before.

merci, Patrick, pour ta note.
There are a lot of details to pay attention to: the graphics of the roof tiles, the strong diagonal of the tank and the rope, the objects and above all the human elements. the baby, so fragile, and the man laid behind him have as counterparts the smile of the girl in the background that sparks in her blurriness, and the aristocratic face of the nurse who holds the baby so gently bring the image a very very light feeling. there is hope spread in this image.
thanks for sharing.

I've looked through your gallery and this photo stands out form the crowd.
I am not aware of the currect situation in Honduras, but judging from your photos it isn't the best.
The B&W conversion for this photo works great, it hides away the disturbing colours and actually puts the entire attention to the nurse and the baby.
The composition is great, all attention to the nurse and the baby with the addition of the people and scenery in the background to give an impression of what state with place is in.

I first thought it would be a nice daily life scene in Honduras. When I saw your shot, I got hit by the realization what you meant by the title... the size of this prematurely born little child, in the centre of the frame, hardly larger than our hand, hit me in the heart... the note has made me feel relief that he has survived. What a start of life. But there are always angels around in the poorest of places... this shot is testament to love.

Looking closely to this picture made a great impact. I didn't notice the little baby. Well captured moment. TFS!

this is one amazing story. Now she must have 23 years! Wonderful tender feeling is emanated by this photo. Yes, children are indeed our future!
Happy new year to you and your family.
