Photographer's Note

This one is between my favourites photos (I talk only about my own photos, of course).
Quickly someone will say: the face is out of focus.

And is true.
He would be right (or she... in spanish I wouldn’t have this problem with he or she, I only would write the verb, he, he, he).

But in the last year I’ve learnt that is not the technic what makes a photo different. If one photo can suggest something, some kind of feeling, then can be a good photo.
And this one makes it to me.
The way as she looks at the camara, her big and dark brilliant eyes, her innocent face (painted because was Carnaval). I like it.
And not only this: her hand. Her hand is perfectly focused when she caught the hand of her mother.
Could be two different photos: the hand and the face. But not would be the same.
Together are special, and I like it.

I cropped and converted to black and white the photo. Also added a bite of sharpness.
It was Carnaval and she was, with her mother, watching a rua of Carnaval in las Ramblas, they were part of the public (as I’ve said, the Carnaval is the reason why she has the face painted).

And well, about kids only add that Alba, the little kid who was beat up by the boyfriend of her mother continues in the hospital. The difference since the last photo? That since two days ago we have another chase of children mistreated by their fathers or boyfriend of the mother.
This time in Valencia.
This time not have, as Alba, five years old.
This time 9 months.

“Now, look at my face, look at my eyes and say me, why do you hit me? Could you do?”

I hope that you like it
