I love both of these photos although the contrast of emotions is so dramatic. The little girl in the top photo so intent on paying back her unseen adversary, drenched in summer fun. Action in her taut arm muscles and circular gush of water. Memory laden with days of my youth.
The second dramatic, haunting photo, void of all the above emotions and captured so emotionally by the photographer, immediately snaps me into a world where need is the overwhelming reality.

Hi Fred :)

Very meaningful photos!

The first girl is enjoying herself. She is splashing the water and having a good time. She is free, full of joy and is involved in an activity which gives her great happiness.

In the second photo the child is unhappy,frightened and facing an uncertain future full of hardship and misery.

Great photos!

Many thanks for sharing:)

Hi Joseph,
I'm glad you liked them, I thought you would and was curious how you would describe them. Thanks for your comments.
God bless,

Hi Mary,
Yes they are amazing aren't they; this guy does a lot of photos with this technique; a true professional.
Love Fred
