Mothers and Children


Today's picture features Bedouin mothers and children. The picture was taken in the late 1800's in the middle east.

  1. PJM - I'm simply not that interested in our desert brothers and sisters. Don't know why. that's just the way it is.

  2. Perhaps they were on the way to the dentist. Neither one looks particularly happy. The one has crooked teeth and the other one has her finger in her mouth perhaps massaging a sore or broken tooth. They have both decided that the addition of gravel as an extender to the goat loaf was a very bad idea.

  3. They are barefoot in the picture, but the children have such heavy looking clothes on. Was it cold or hot???
    I so love your site, and look everyday, but I've only commented twice even though I love all the pictures. If only I'd known you wanted me to make comments, I would have, because one thing is I'm never lost for words!1

  4. This is a great picture. It really does capture the moment and there is something in the colors that I really love. I will be coming back to your blog from time to time to look at more.

  5. I see these women not as sad or in pain but in the sunlight, carrying their precious children and working hard to care for the future generations!
    Also, the type of photograph is new to me. I find it amazing to see such great quality considering when the photo was taken.
    I don't usually comment on your pictures, though I check in on your blog daily. I've learned not to depend on others to show my appreciation. You will be seeing my comments often now.

  6. I love looking at old photos...so thank you for posting them here. :) Secondly, I'm baffled by the first two comments. I'm sorry those words were posted. Keep the beautiful photos coming.
