Thank you for sharing these images they are amazing.
The ice shelf with humans in proportion is an awe inspiring image. If all that ice becomes water where will we be?

Talk about contrast. Women lined up with automatic weapons, a man bathing a baby. lot of symbolism there.

Bea said...

Can't make up my mind which one I favor. I keep going back to look at all of them. Those young girls, lined up with their guns strapped to their back, haunting. The coyboy, sigh.........thanks for sharing these. You find the most amazing things to share with us. I do SOOOOOOOOO appreciate it. I have learned so much. :)Bea

As imagens por si só são significativas, bonitas, e o preto e branco lhes empresta força e intensidade. Lindas!
Um abraço e ótimo final de semana

In the Cowboy Series photos, I like the lighting and the view point. The photographer captured the action nicely. Other photos are great.
