Riding a bike
I was walking after lunch in the village when I saw these children coming, quickly, hide the camera, stay at the side of the street and wait for them to pass
They saw me the moment I took the photo, said nothing, but look at me in that way…
Building contrast and civilization
That s why I like the street, you can see people (women) at work gardening, painting fences in old houses, mixed with them, there are new ones like the one at the right
I prefer wooden fences ( painted) that brick made ones, so common in all the world, but civilization arrives in general in the occidental way, putting aside traditions (buildings, meals, languages)

A nice street shot and their typical fashion on which you've brought this to life. What colourful characters you've got, it's timely shot well detailed and something for viewers to be drawn too, particularly the curious looking eyes. The background is equally attractive to trigger the eyes as well and the feeling of 'life' that they convey, but the colour contrast making him the central of focus. A good candid documenting the occasion. Very well done, TFS.

Photography of people, social documentary style, will always attract the viewer, to understand the basic issues of society, culture, religion, customs and ... nations. Relatives, you have a good look through photography

Hi Maria. I wonder what sort of world awaits these boys, what future is there for them in their village. I read your note and I wonder if by occidental you mean one country in particular which thanks to its enticing packaging of goods and ideas has diluted everything around it that stood for something into a sameness that only represents exploitation and profit. I wonder where those young ladies are marching off to. Regards. Klaudio.

Thank you for bringing such sweet and lovely image from such a distant land!

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the peaceful place with simple life style and the surrounding environment of road/fence/houses. And, two kids passing the road draw out a good effect in this image.

With serious look on their faces, Maria, those kids try to show they were not interested: however, they just played tough "looks-exchanges" with you, knowing you have the camera, and they are already in as the protagonists on the scene.
Nice captured photo.

Une autre jolie façon de montrer la vie typique des personnes, j'aime la scène, la prise rapprochée des enfants, des couleurs qui rendent bien, belle présentation
Je confirme il y a des couleurs fortes en France :-)

Bonjour chère Maria
Intéressante scène de la vie quotidienne
Ici je peux me permettre de critiquer : Le ciel est un peu surexposé compte tenu de la différence de luminosité ciel/Terre, il est donc possible de sauver le ciel comme je l'ai fait en WS

Magnifico retrato de estos dos chicos, que segun parece por sus rostros poco amistosos no les gusto especialmente ser fotografiados, el entorno de la calle nos da la sensacion de un lugar apartado y rural.
Bien gestionada la iluminacion y una gran nitidez.
Pasa un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Dobar den Maria,
Great shot, you show daily in a remoted village of Eastern Siberia
I like the colors and exposition, sure that these children are not accustomed to see visitors
ourania (38928) 2013-07-26 7:53
this is a very spontaneous capture of the scene and its mood. Although the little boys don't look friendly but surprised and annoyed, their expressions are captivating. They probably tell us things about their daily life and mentality, they're not excited to see a visitor but annoyed, not sparing a minute. The high fences, the condition of the distant buildings, the moody lighting and colours give us a hint that this isn't an inviting place anyway. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

¿El muchacho con pantalones amarillos y verdes... el es fan de fútbol Brasil?
Y si está Brasileñero, porque no gritó usted, "¡ Vamos, Argentina!"?

And a super privet to you as well! :)
The young man on foot looks just like one of my best friends sons, it's almost scary how similar they are. Perhaps he has a long lost Russian brother I need to inform him about. :) I can't believe I never picked up on this until now...I guess my eyesight is not very good for picking out much detail from the smaller, thumbnail images!?
Your description of how you took this picture is exactly the kind of instincts and quick thinking to obtain such a candid and well executed result. I often try to stay unnoticed until the last possible moment...but as you know, it doesn't always work. lol
A fun, expressive and color filled clothing affair, this turned out really well! Enjoy the rest of your evening. спокойной ночи
