I am sitting at home, sick, decided to go through some old photos.
This was taken at a bus station, these two children were managing the bus stand stall for their mother while she was sleeping. The little boy, who must have been all of 8 or 9 was also keeping an eye on his younger sister who was toddling around the stand.
I am certainly not advocating child labour, but I do think we molly coddle our children in the west!

A great presentation. I love the proud look on the little boys face and his sister's expression too.
The framing is great as is the composition. I usually don't like frames but in this photo I really thin it's great.

Whose belly ache, Elaine? Yours at the moment? Looking at the picture? I guess you did not eat the stuff.
Lovely children, Elaine, the little girl looks so seriously into your lens, her brother has a proud expression on his face.
The blue bucket is a nice element in it.

very cute children, I like the way the big brother is standing behind his sister, very protective.
I'm sick too today,so I'd better not watch this plate for too long...

I really like this photo. So lovely familiar faces. Laos is very beautiful country, good place for a wild travelling. Special for you I posted another photo with the boat in Workshop.
All the best wishes,
