I first got into photography while working at a daycare in college. I’ve long said that kids make it really easy to take good pictures. They are so full of emotion and expression. These two boys were snapped on the road to the market. I took two shots and for the second shot which you […]
I’m not quite sure what I like so much about this image that I took by the town’s corn mill. It may be the girl’s dress that just pops out with its bright pattern. It may be the expressions on their faces or the way she is clutching her cloth that bundles up her money. […]
