I took this picture of these lovely kids in a place called Grabouw in South Africa. Notice them sharing slippers!
Grabouw is a place about 80km east of Cape Town and I had an internship there. A fellow intern and me were assisting in teaching local people grow their own vegetables in their gardens. These kids were also very interested.

you've captured a lovely moment, beautiful glances and expressions :)Not to mention, given the shadows, the lighting probably wasn't at its best, yet the colours are great.

After looking at your wonderful gallery, I chose to comment on this photograph. You have really captured the close relationship and bond between these two children. I like that you positioned yourself eye level to them--it makes the subjects more approachable. It is great how repsonsive the children are to you and the camera. It is obvious that they were comfortable with you and I think that is important when you photograph people in this manner. You also provided the viewer with a glimpse of the childrens' daily lives. Nice clarity and colors. I may have cropped out the folks on the r/s, but it is a great photograph just the same!
Thanks for checking out my gallery :)
