This photo was taken in one of the tiny islands in the south of Thailand. This area is rather poor, local economy depends mainly on fishing and, to small extent, on tourism. Furthermore, it is a place that was totally destroyed by tsunami just a few years ago. Nevertheless, the locals don't seem to be unhappy. Quite the opposite, I hardly ever see such a joyful group of people with a strong community spirit.
Those kids were enjoying themselves, playing and having fun on the beach, like kids do in any place in the world.
At the time of taking the picture I wasn't thinking about all three boys wearing yellow t-shirts. It was a nice surprise to later look at the photo and be pleased with the result.

A pleasant and spontaneous photo, perfectly composed. The yelloow colour of the shirts brings a common theme. And behind, the sea and longboats offer a perfect background.

It' s funny that they are all dressed in yellow.

The yellow shirts really add a colourful flare to this active photo.
the boat is perfectly positioned between the two boys
