Baby hands

Today is Youth Day here in South Africa. Youth Day commemorates the start of the Soweto riots of 1976. The iconic picture of Hector Pieterson, a black schoolchild shot by the police, brought home to many people within and outside South Africa the brutalities of the Apartheid regime. I have done a post on the Hector Pieterson Memorial in Soweto, Johannesburg before which can be seen by clicking on the link above.
I didn't have anything youthy to post today, so I decided to show a couple of pictures of my baby nephew's hands I took the other day.

  2. Cute and cuddly - just wait until the child starts to howl. I like the 1st photo - sepia works well.
