  1. Remarkable composition, in oh so many ways.

  2. her pose is the decisive moment iteself 😉

  3. Mimo I often wonder when I look at your photos that depict hardship ( to our western eyes) whether the people themselves consider it to be hardship or if they just accept it and are actually happy.. impossible to answer of course …

  4. Hi Mimo can you tell me where did you take photos? I mean in whcihc part of China?

    • Hi! This month’s photographs are all taken in the area of Guilin and surrounding Yangshuo and Longji. Hope that answers your question! Thank you for kind RT and comments 🙂

  5. Oh that’s a furrowed face and a fixed expression, Mimo – and combined with the heavy load and the bent over, almost crouching posture, this is a very effective portrait. Well photographed! Adrian
