I like to explore….
i’m not sure whether that makes me smile, or sad…
I know what you mean but these kids seemed so happy and loved. Definitely they are very poor by western standards and life is extremely tough up in the mountains, a lot of hard labour to survive, but families seemed close and the kids smiley and playful. They even had constructed massive swings from crossed-over tall ‘branches’ and rope to entertain the children (and me in this instance!). You could swing high and take in the amazing views…..great fun!
Wow we sure could learn from them eh?!
So true… 🙂
Classic Nepali children. Lovely candid shot. Whereabouts in Nepal was this taken? I’ve been very fortunate to have trekked into the Everest area twice – all my shots are on Kodachrome. One day hopefully I’ll get some of them scanned….
This was the five day Poon hill trek which I loved….WOW you did the Everest area?! Very impressive…I heard it is quite a challenge? It would be amazing to see those shots….you MUST get them scanned, if only to safely preserve those precious memories 🙂
Adorbs! What cutie pies!
Aren’t they just?!!
Great pic! Looks like you’ve travelled a lot!
Thanks! I’ve been around a bit….but so much more to see!
ahhhh…nepal. Great picture of the kids. Looks like i have to plan a trip there soon !
Thanks….you must, you wont regret it! 🙂
I thought I traveled a lot. This here young lady wears out a pair of shoes a week! Good thing she likes shoes 😉
I do like this photo…the smiles and the smiley eyes are the best! And especially for children, I don’t think money or having “things” are as important to them as feeling loved by their parents, and the joy of being a child and learning and experiencing new things in their world each day. Like Buckwheat said, we could definitely learn something from them.
Haha @ the shoes bit 😉 You talk a lot of sense Dug and it was such a pleasure to see the delight on their faces as they saw themselves on my camera!! I wanted a photo of that! 🙂 I feel like a child when I travel because I get those feelings of excitement at seeing so many things for the first time! It feels really good….
The very poor have an amazing capacity for joy!!! Beautiful shot!
Thank you, I really believe this too….when you have very little the highs you experience are so much higher and you’re appreciation of everything good, so much greater!
Ah, I was cute like that once… : (
