the dalai lama came to paris today, and this morning he met the tibetan community in a hotel. She is a tibetan woman. :)

this is not a set up, she sat on this couch and i had noticed how this place could be a photogeneic spot... so when she sat i asked her if i could take a photo and she held the baby next to her face, smiling, i took a few shots and turned around, and when i looked back again she was in that position, so i took another photo.

I like the composition in this one and a kind of symmetry I can see inside.

a moment forever remembered -- she connects so well -- with her child -- and the light knows beauty -- later days

it's interesting how you stated "this is not a set up" in your description.

of course, knowing you and your work, i was sure it was not. i think it's a great photo and looks too good to be not "set up", but i have shots like that and you and others too.

i just know the situation, when i show some of my prints of streetshots, that people don't believe it wasn't set up. i think it's a sort of compliment to be honest.

it means, you're better than HCB ;)

really lovely shot !

HCB didn't stage either :oops:

i thought only doisneau did that.. ok then. oh well.
we all have an influence on the subjects we photograph
and if it's not a direct influence, the photograph is never objective anyway. :)
