This is a very intense photo, but without the caption that skull and crossbones is disturbing. Was he playing pirate really? #124817

This picture was taken in one of my organisation's parties. This boy's name is Eugene, one of our kids from an impoverished (dumpsite) area in Quezon City, Philippines, called Payatas. The kids were allowed to draw anything they wanted on their face or limbs using a skin pastel. this happened to be one of the more popular images for the boys. Btw, as an aside, I just received confirmation that he is just about ready to get his hair-lip operated on. c",) Thank you Josh.. #521393

Your right Josh, this photograph is very intense. Eugene has beautiful eyes and I wish him him every success with his surgery Aldwin.

Great shot.

Bless his heart - and bless those making his operation possible. And eye-opener of an image... #521485

He's doing well Susan... he's in the last phase of the surgery... installing a plate on the upper palate to cut the canal from his nostril to his mouth. I'll try to look for his most recent picture, then i'll upload it... He's really a handsome kid. God bless Susan :) #2975393
