Hi Eugene. Such a bright, lighthearted image.Even the portly woman seems to be flying with the birds.I wonder if the chain links (if that is what they are)on the man's ankle signifies the fate of the Indios or has it to do with slavery? I didn't think the latter applied to Ecuador.Anyway, they all seem to be free as the birds. I wonder if the image would have had greater impact if she was walking in the same direction.Regards. Klaudio.

Thank you for this sobering photograph and essay. I like the drama of the B&W format for story as somber. Incidentally, you can make the links that you've cited live, so that they open up when you click on them. Thus More than 100,000 elephants..., Poachers can drive... and Save the elephants....
If you are interested in the simple code that you can embed the links in, please drop me a note at email@example.com Another trekearth member once gave it to me.

At least, it seems a good opportunity for a few shots. Once again you got a fabulous sky and light. The sky is really wonderful, almost in layers, and the landscape is very beautiful!

Merhaba Ali. I got to ask you if you are of Turkmen ancestry. I found an old National Geographic with images of Turkmen from north eastern Turkey(actually women in their costumes) from 1939!! They look different from these women in facial features but according to the magazine they have kept themselves apart from the rest of the poulation. Decisions, decisions....shopping is not an easy thing when there are many choices. Selamlar. Klaudio.

Dear Miss Christie,
There is little doubt they rushed off having sensed danger. Why would anyone abandon a glass of wine half full... or half empty. I like the perspective you've chosen, revealing transparent, translucent and opaque objects all in one frame. And of the course, the frame is gun metal gray in color, around the photograph tastefully placed in a double mat. The sunlight diffracting off the rim of the glass has cast a lovely halo over the shadow of the wine glass.

Merhaba Ahmet. Apart from electricity and all things plastic, life has not changed much for this woman when compared to the life lived by her grandmother. Early morning, she is hard at work. I saw many women hoeing the land when I was around the Black Sea. Regards. Klaudio.

this is one of those fun type of photos to take.
and in all honesty the mass majority of people out there may not really be drawn to it - but people like you and me are :)
it may not conform to the social norms of what is 'pretty' in photography, but i love it.
ugly is the new pretty lol
