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)

Susana,Did the mother ever come back for the prints.I'm really hoping she did,I don't want to think of child growing up with no photos ever taken of her.

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!
