One reason I like this photo is because of the boy wearing the red sweater. He brings the photographer into the shot with his glance. The second reason I like this shot is the mix of clothes the kids are wearing. It reminds me of any village where I’ve traveled where kids have access to western style clothes but mix it up with traditional items.
The book, a Lao alphabet book, is from a project called Big Brother Mouse that fosters literacy in Laos. The book was left with two older kids in the village. According to the description by uncorneredmarket who posted the shot, it seemed the kids hadn’t seen a book before and were delighted–a fine interaction indeed.
If you’ve had a fine interaction, share it with us with your photos by posting them at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool.
