    This is like something out of National Geographic - it's simply stunning. The subtle colors and composition are perfect, and the child's eyes hypnotic. Awesome photo, Mike!

Thank you for the kind words. I've actually returned to find the boy (Ali Bakari) and to present a copy of the print to his mother. She was in tears as it is the only photograph of her son that she's ever had. Moments like that to remind of the power of photography...
