A Childs pose

Someone said to me the other day that kids and in particular African kids are so easy to capture on camera as they are always very eager to be photographed. That's interesting and in some sense quite true but not always because sometimes they don't give you the pose you want. They are easy to work with once you have connected with them but you also have to be  patient with them too otherwise they will give you what you don't want.

You must have mastered the technique, because this is a beautiful portrait.
This is really beautiful. I would have loved photos of my kids like this.
Simply wonderful! Very very good light!

Happy New Year!
