Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity


I took this photo in Rottenburg Germany a few weeks ago.  The love and affection of this grandmother to the young child shows the essence of humanity.  To me it shows both the needs the child and the support that is provided by the extended family unit.  This relationship is basic to the human condition across all national and geographic boundaries.

Family and Humanity - the two go hand in hand

    How touching. This really should be submitted to National Geographic. You are right that humanity & family do need to harmonize. I wish that were true for all.
