Child Care

(click or tap the image for higher resolution)

I don't think child-care exists in Cambodia, but if it does, I'm sure it's only for the rich. This little tyke was perched up on the market stall along with her mom and gran. She was quite happy helping out with the sales of vegetables and fruit and having a grand old time. She doesn't look too happy simply because of a ugly stranger (me) looking at her with a camera. I like the rather doleful and wary expression.  This is a very hard crop of a much wider shot, probably utilising only 15% of the original image. 
Leica M9 with 35mm Summicron at f2.


  1. What a beautiful photo, Peter, and compelling portrait.

  2. Thank you Jan, good to see you passing by!
