Beautiful work as always, Tina.  You have such a knack for conveying the 
humanity and soul of your subjects.

I'm curious--how do you generally work with your subjects?  Apart from the 
posed "portraits," my guess is that you get people comfortable with your 
presence until they stop acting like a photographer is around.  Some of 
your Nicaragua photos look like they could only have been taken by a member 
of the family.

Anyway, however you do it, the results are wonderful.

The Kenya photos appeared at an opportune time for me.  I just configured 
and sent several computers to Zimbabwe for some health researchers who are 
going there on an AIDS prevention/research project. so my thoughts are in 
that part of the world right now.  Along with a shirt button that popped 
off and must have ended up in one of the boxes.
