With a fist and a smile by gilad With a fist and a smile by gilad

Let’s play war games.
We’ll fight for our right to fight.
I'll kill you gently, with a smile.
And get away with it, with the beauty of politics

Let’s shake bloody hand,
Let’s say one thing, and do another.
Let’s smile and talk of peace,
While our legs, kicking under the table.

Let’s play peace games,
With a fist and a smile


****

Taken with Film (you won't find many of those in my gallery) in my trip to India.
This shot was featured in a few exhibitions dedicated to peace and understanding. I'm very proud of it.
Just a little clarification: The short poem is not aimed at this sweet kid. In no way is he to blame by the sarcasm of the words. This kid was playing some war games with his friends, and in a split second i got this genuine fist and a smile.

****

I closed the picture on top of another file, so ignore the EXIF data shown.
Camera: Nikon 6006
Lens: 50mm, F1.8
Film: 800 Iso
Date: February, 2005
You keep asking about PS work, so I'll say in advance - No PS

i like this portrait, the crop is good and also the relation between subject-photographer and subject-background. Maybe sharpness is just too high, but this is just my opinion... well done!
