A shot as I came upon mother and child, but this sweet cutie on piggyback caught my attention even more. Just a depiction of a small insight into lives of rural Laos. Taken in Phathao village north of Vang Vieng - a charming remote village and home to ethnic Hmong nestled between lush verdant landscape shaded by the amazing limestone karsts formations.

Just a simple quick snap.......

Setting: 200 mm, 1/800 sec, F3.5, ISO 200, 0749 hrs

Hello Abmdsudi,
A charming capture of mother and child nicely picked out in the sunlight. Pleasant warm lights and colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Abmdsudi,

A superb dual portrait of the profiled mother and child with excellent use of a shallow dof & good sharpness. The red and blue colours of their shirts add a splendid warm vs cold colour contrast. Tfs!

Beautifully shown, good contrast, beautiful colors, nice caught moment.
Nice moments with your mother and child.
I wish you a nice and peaceful night, all the best.

Hi Abmdsudi
the mother wouldn't be able to carry his son like that now, as this was taken 11 years ago haha. I hope the family is still ok. Even in this close up scene we can tell they live a hard life, the clothing is dirty and the boy actually looks quite sad. Sad but also a great photo, well done to capture it so eloquently. cheers

Hi dear Abmdsudi YTH

Another finest human story shot! Mother's and his expressions are so meaningful. A little sad otherwise melancholy? You are realy portrait specialist, I am sure. Great shot!

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Cette communion naturelle entre mère et enfant est visible à travers cette composition.
Un jeu de lumière de toute beauté également.

Ciao Abmdsudi
un doppio ritratto scaldato dalla luce del sole.
Bello l'effetto finale, un ottimo risultato.
