[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For six months i lived with a wealthy malagasy family in a poor village. Every day all the children of the village were fed by the lady. This was their only food of the day. I wanted to emphasise movement and capture as many boys as possible so a low angle and a tripod were neccesarry. Processed like the other photos in my malagasy bw series. I will keep them coming!

Excellent note and complimentary photo.
Wonderful shot with the great b/w tonal range.

Did you use the 24mm prime for this?


Excellent shot. Good comp & telling story. The motion is very good. Well done.

I don't really like tripod because it restrict the flexibility. Besides, its too bulky to be carried around. however, this photo is really great. inspite of the poverty and the untasteful food, the kids still enjoy their meal.

Hi Paul,
Message received indeed a delicious picture! What a great shot in BW the action of the eating children is very interesting itís shouting for a story and you told us. Well done and TFS!

Excellent shot, Paul! They are so concentrated on eating that even though you are very close to them, not one is looking at you! Well done!

Honestly,I am weak at portrait,s subject.But I like the depth;the angle and the lower shutter speed of this picture!Impressive!Good POV!

great work, wonderful movement and mood! great b&w work!

excellent journalistic work here paul :)
beautiful in b/w
the composition and movement are superb

What a great shot Paul! Such a great compliment to clean plates. Such focused attention on the meal, not the photographer.
