Coming around the corner all of a sudden she stood in front of me. The coming business lady, may be 8 years old. Some garlic to sell. What do you do ..?

Amazing shot, splendid portrait, she seems coming out of a dream ...
She is working when she is still a little girl.
Another great capture of yours.
Every post of yours brings me more and more each day on the way to Mali :)

:( What's wrong with her finger?
It's a nice portrait (again), even if it's not so great to see kids working... Great capture!


Het wordt eentonig.
Maar dit is ook een prachtige foto. Mooie achtergrond ook.
Heel mooi om te zien.
Nog een gezond en voorspoedig nieuw jaar.

Buy garlic in return for a picture of course!!!
Very nice picture, Frans.
Good composition and colours and a nice frame.
Good job.

Gelukkig nieuwjaar trouwens,
G. ;)

What a beautiful little girl! Incredible lighting that's softened, and the out-of-focus background makes the girl in the foreground pop out. Great contrasts and I love her mature and elegant pose. The way she carries the basket on her head reminds me so much of Senegal. The stone block background is wonderful. Excellent work and TFS!

Hello Frans,
A very compelling portrait. Nice capture of her expression, and nice detail.
You bought garlic, of course.
All the best in 2007,

wonderful portrait

elle est adorable, cette photo !


Fantastic, could not be better.

Hi Frans,
This is a beautiful portrait, her gesture is well captured. Good composition and colors.
