Was this part of the shoot for the The Sakakawea Blanket Project? It's a great shot and does portray love between mother and child. Congrats!

Thanks for your kind comments, Lori and Alisha.
I'm afraid I am unfamiliar with that project, Lori.
This shot was taken in the Kangchenjunga region in Eastern Nepal.
Best regards,

Hi Dirk,

You have captured such a sweet moment, between a mother and a child. Wonderful. This should have gotten a first palce.

Dear Alisha, Carolina, Donna N., K.S., Lori, Robin, Nancy, Evy, Donna P., Susana, Manjesh and Kathleen,
Thanks a lot for looking and for your much appreciated words.
It is a while ago since I briefly met the woman and her baby, but I will never forget that moment.
It was magic.
Best regards,

Proud Mum with soon to be wise Monk kid, love the combination!! Plus the feeling that Mum is saying, ok, so you're going to a wise monk in your day, but you're still my cute kid now:)
