Kids doing what kids do the whole world over...watching itsy-bitsy spider crawling up the wall.
Photographed in Lamu where there are no cars, television and rarely electricity.
Maybe that explains why almost all you hear during day is the noise of children playing.
Probably something to do with having nothing else to do at night.

Camera:Canon EOS-1D Mark II
Lens:28:200 Canon

Agree with Jim...I'd be waiting for them to turn around instead of seeing a photo in this!

Had to come back to this, David, as I very regularly do with many of your uploads. IMHO it's one of the very best examples yet of your insightful skills, to a large extent made by the fact that they are (apparently) totally oblivious of your presence! As ever, your mastery of light and shade is astonishing.

I almost passed this one over until I read the description and then opened up the large version. It's absolutely lovely. Even though kids in our so called "developed" societies have play stations, computers, TV and so on, they are still fascinated by nature too. John

This is just the best photo, it is so compelling. Maybe it's because it portrays the simple things in life can sometimes be the most interesting. Perfect photo - Alyssia

Totally captivating. Isn't it wonderful how kids can become absorbed in the smallest thing and not so wonderful how adults tend to forget it all. Thank goodness, you don't. I love the way you pick out the small details, the little things, the expressions that have gone in the next second. Great work, always.
