Shoeless Boy Playing With A Ball

Shoeless boy playing with ball

The boy wanted to play with me

Shot in the village of Akha tribe on outskirts of Muang Sing, Laos.

After I entered into the village, I felt unwelcome. Even though the villagers noticed me, they just looked at me without getting too close. The exception was the children. Some children were approaching me with great curiosity. The boy in this photo was one of them.

The shoeless boy was playing with a tattered ball. He caught the ball pleasantly when I threw it. I threw again and again because he always gave me a ball after catching. It seemed to be lasting forever.
