Light and Beauty

There is a special light that photographers call magical—when the sun is setting and surrounds everything with a soft glow. It’s also present in the early morning hours as two of these photos attest. In one, Anita and Artimisa are clothed in capulanas to keep warm in the cool morning air. In the other, children carry rolled-up esteiras, woven mats used as bedding and floor mats, to sell in the market in a larger town nearby. The third photo is of little Alfonso sleeping in Lehla's arms, oblvious to everything but a feeling of comfort and safety. Oh, so much beauty!
