nice photo congratulations.i like her exepresion!

kenskid: one of my friends is muslim, and i was trying 2 know more about them!. The most famous wars they have been involved in are 3;palestine* Israel, Iraq * America ,and Chechnya * Russia.All this wars are not between Muslims*Muslims!.you can go and search about the reasons of these wars!!

Yes...to me it does matter. She may be Muslim. I was wondering if she was involved in any of the wars that Muslims were killing other Muslims because they pray at a different type Mosque.

Nice photo as has been said, although I would find it a little odd to dress up a model as a child of war.


The point of the photograph is to capture a question of WHY???? I asked myself....why are their children of war? Does it really matter what war they are in?

Do you ever wonder WHY God...if there is one, would allow innocent kids to be victims of war?

See...that is more my point.

There was a thread this weekend dealing with "GOD", creation and evolution. Do you ever wonder WHY God...if there is one, would allow innocent kids to be victims of war?

It is unfortunate that children are involved in the hate that mankind has developed for each other. Their innocence is lost. I feel that is global with all wars. That is the point of the WHY???? photograph, they are innocent victims.

Good photo. I would like to see the focus be a little bit more crisp....

I am not a good photographer, I do not claim to be better than anyone, any criticism is meant to be constructive criticism......
