Three little children I happened to meet in the old part of Taizz city in western Yemen. I think the sister looks very protective towards her kid brothers, telling them that the strange man is probably not dangerous.
A scan of a Kodachrome slide. The camera was a Canon F-1.

A very pretty portrait of these children. The stones in the graphical background are also an important part of this picture.

your motive is excellent, the kids are just sooo cute and the white lines on the stones behind them are a nice touch. a perfect example that family sticks together :)

I think that only the kids give this feeling that arrive straight to the heart.
Everything in this picture talk about poverty, and I feel so sad for all the kids in the word do not have enough...food, love, care, health....
Congratulation a very good shot

One of the rare underestimate picture of your gallery Gert, these 3 children are posing perfectly for your camera, they look shy and well-behaved, they take care well of their little brother, an authentic shot from Yemen, a country visited by very few people

it's hard to look away from three sets of eyes focused so intently on you, the photographer, and by association, each of us who view your photograph. what an intriguing trio! i love their intensity ~ her protectiveness, but also the curiosity of the little one in the middle, and the leaning in, wanting-to-be-a-good-subject of the little boy on the far left, very compelling and charming. a lovely catch in front of that old stone wall that looks as if someone whitewashed the mortar.
and (playing your usual game of 'who are they now?') they must all be 15 years older! :)

Good quality shot despite its age! this is a delightful group portraits of such adorable cuties and standout so superbly in the rustic background. It's also so wonderful to see their clean clear facial features and in particular their eyes connection make the shot stronger. A really pleasant shot full of vivid details in natural colours and the hint of smile on that face is amazing and real bonus. A very appealing shot, Congrats and tfs.
