Black H'Mong kids in a small alluvial village upriver from Sapa... The chicken is short-lived. During lunch I let the kids run around with the camera and they took some pretty good shots really. While big sister hastened the chicken's end, the other kids sat on the dirt floor and watched Chinese soap operas on the family B&W TV. Some of the friedliest people you'll come across in Viet Nam.

Looks like the chicken is about done.
Excellent composition of these two aspiring H'Mong photographers. The expression of the kids faces is very sweet, puts a smile on my face.

A nice image, Caleb,so much contrast between the two girls postures, framed by the wooden boards.maybe a little bit overaccentuated for me.
all the best

yeah, the chicken looks a bit unhappy ... pretty girls, i bet they make good cooks, too :)!
maybe a tiny bit too sharp?
still lovely colorful composition!
well done as always
thanks for sharing,

Good daily life scene, & a surprise to see the chicken, which was not obvious in the thumbnail. Excellent sharpness & framing, in this superb dual portrait. Tfs!
