Taken at a very poor neighbourhood, at Luxor ..
Van passed fast, I just shot..
Not easy to find some verses..
In the wide courtyard of our house
a child not even nine yet
tossed some wheat on the earth
sprouting cities of hunger.
Ahmed al-Shahawi- Egyptian poet

Translation: мелковато- too small
каллоритная ( should be колоритная )-colourful
разглядывать - to see ( in small details)

I love this image...Mowgli just came from jungle - and became a girl...
If in some way you could bring more light on left hand of girl...

more than Маугли, i saw in her a defiant attitude , a hard determination to overcome her state.. her present life..
