Favela Faces

I was drawn in by the sober look on this young man's face.

This photo is made more dramatic by the fact that you only see part of the young face that she reveals above the vivid colors of her painting. I'd love a print of this.

Flickr user carf catches the innocence of the children of Rio de Janiero's favelas in amazing ways.

Can you believe the color of those eyes? I guess that's what they mean when they talk of "limpid pools". Such a stunning color of blue, it's almost unreal.

What a gorgeous smile.

The reflection in this child's eyes is fascinating.
