Shot in the village of Akha tribe on outskirts of Muang Sing, Laos.
As opposed to the adult villagers, the children exposed their curiosities. It might be uncommon to meet foreigners for them. The shoeless boy in this photo approached me.
He had a long pole in his hands. After he stopped just in front of me, he started to look up at me. The long shadow of him was falling down on the ground. At first, he asked for some money to me. Yet when I started to play with him, he forgot such thing at once. And he played with me happily.
