Talking To sdnpicz: Pin on the shirt

Hey Shadan,

Thank you very much, I'm happy that you enjoy this photo.

About the pin on the boy's shirt, I can only speculate but my guess is that it's there to keep his pants up. If you look closely you will see that it goes through his t-shirt and then through the trousers as well. The people in this area are really very poor and something like a belt is a total luxury that they wouldn't be able to afford. So I guess his trousers are slightly big for him and were falling down and the pin was the solution!

It's amazing the things we take for granted isn't it!

All the best to you Shadan and God bless!

Greetings Lavonne,

Thanks a lot for replying.
Hmmmm... you are right.. we can find these type of things in India too, and I have seen.
Really a hardship for them and they manage themselves well. May God help them and lead to progress.

Yes amazing!

If you don't mind I've asked something about the texture of photograph, especially on faces. Looks like HDR. Is that HDR effect of some editing?
Thanks again,

All the best and God bless you too Lavonne.

Kind Regards,
Shadan
