The Only Hope by lorrainemd The Only Hope by lorrainemd
...is that this destitute little girl will find something or someone to mitigate the circumstances of her poverty.

I reiterate - count thy blessings, for we know not how lucky we truly are.

the cat looks so at peace

and her colors on her clothes are awesome in the photo, yes?

she looks so serious - too serious for a child - ugh, makes me sad

I honestly think you are one of the best photojournalists in that every peice has heart. There may be scenes of complete devestation depicted, but in every one you show that you care so much about your subjects and that it's not just a case of "Get the shot and get out".

Thankyou so much.

Gorgeous concept. What's interesting about this image is that I don't think the girl looks sad or depressed here at all. In fact, I think it shows fortitude in her, and she looks almost like a war hero - just barely skimming through alive, but still emotionally strong in the face of it all. Wonderful work! This piece is truly touching.

This is a beautiful albeit poignant image...I am glad this little girl has at least found momentary solace in the kitten she carries. It has been said that when you are going through adversity...one of the quickest ways to not dwell on it is to help someone less fortunate than yourself...in this image...this little girl has probably and unknowningly done that by taking care of this kitten...notice how she seems to be partially protecting it as well. You have a great image :nod:
Can you tell us a little bit more about your interaction with your subject? Where was this taken...were you able to help her in any way? Thanks for sharing this image with us.:rose::+favlove:

While it was perfect for the photograph, I hope she smiles soon.

Gorgeous little girl, and her little friend.

This is quite a touching image...the girl's expression shows a weariness that only people decades older should have. Hopefully the kitten did indeed give her joy and unconditional love.

Very emotive.
A tear has flown my eyes.

It might be her only source of happiness... but she needs nothing else. She is complete.
Let's help her... but not poison her with things she doesn't need.

Powerful.
