I was struggling to find something that would make a good picture that was slightly different from the norm as I walked around the World Refugee Day Festival at the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta.  It was a bit too early in the evening, things hadn’t really kicked off yet but we needed an early picture for the newspaper.  However, a little bit of patience paid off.  The interaction between a Maltese woman and an African migrant child was precisely the sort of thing I was looking for.
