The Game And A Red Shoe

Location : Non Seung, near Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand

Village life... squeezed between a house (visible upper right corner) and a wall (visible lower right corner four kids (Fon, Mak, Hom and Wad) play a game of mak-hot (checkers), improvising with a piece of paper and stones.

To get high enough for the shot, I stood on the wall, trying to stay balanced by holding on to the roof of the house, and thus making myself the target of mockery and laughter among the kids and the villagers. So it may not be art, but don't tell me I'm not suffering for it ;o)

exposure time : 1/250 sec
aperture : f/4.0
photo taken at 9h45 am

great story to it. love the point of view. i think the thing that really makes this shot is the middle kids hand that makes the composition more interesting and the great great color of the back round.
cheers.

Agree with you Gil about the arm grabbing the stones bringing it to life. Glad you mentioned it.
