Here in northern Mexico it is customary for "beggars" to knock on doors asking for help. This rainy morning a Tarahumara Indian mother and her little baby girl were at my doorstep. The mother graciously allowed me to take a few photos in exchange for some food and clothes. She said she had no pictures of her baby so I told her to come back soon to pick up some prints :o)

Ken, she only got a few 4x6's. When she came back I was getting an enlargement framed for her and she never returned after that. The finished image is still here waiting for her. It's been about 2 years now so who knows if she'll ever be back at my door... Hopefully :o) Thanks Ken for the message!
