I was at a school to give a talk about turtles. Being probably the only westerner to have ever visited the school was obviously a great reason for the happy children to run wild!
Whilst walking past one of the school windows the whole classroom seemed to jump up from their desks and smile and shout greetings at me! I smiled back, said hello, how are you in arabic, and took a quick picture. When I turned the camera round to show the kids the viewfinder they were simply amazed :-)

first of all you've got a great and interesting experience! And this is obvious to your picture which is also interesting and so dynamic. Your picture is well-composed and all these kids are so cute! Their glances override your picture!So interesting!

Hello Casper! This photo turned out very nice. The primary colours that go so well with children - I just love framing of that window, and the boy in the red shirt standing at the side added a lot compositionally. It always makes me sad to see people behind the bars, even though its school this time...but we all now that there is a certain symbolism in that, eheh ;)
