Photographer's Note

Here's one of my many parent and children photos in Nan among the H'mong villagers.

I have been following this pair for quite sometime. Earlier, I took around five pictures of them but it didn't turn out right (still experimenting with my bro's D100). After the holy mass, I again followed them. THis time, it turned out quite well.

H'mongs are loving people. This is an example of this virtue. Mothers bring their kids along with them to important occassions. I guess one reason is because nobody is gonna take care of them anyway at home. Fathers are out somewhere doing something for the livelihood. I especially like the way this mother carries her kid around. She has this colorful clothing which also work as a support for the weight of the baby. What is unsual though is she's carrying her upfront. Most other mothers are carrying their kid at the back. I can see much tenderness here..so much love.
