JOY RIDERS

By JN_CHATELAIN_PHOTOGRAPHY
Another photo taken in the village of Ta Lai neat Cat Tien National Park in Vietnam. Walking down the main street I could hear some rattling noising and giggling. I just had time to grab a shot of those two kids and they went past. I love the beaming smile of th elittle girl on the back of the bike.

f14 1/80th sec zoom at 32mm

Thanks for the comments on the mother and her delightful baby up-loaded yesterday.

The offering today is of some more Vietnamese children. They're so photogenic and play the way I used to play as a kid. Just pure innocence and joy!

Have a nice sunny day,

Jean-NoŽl

More good reportage. I favour V3, the slightly tighter crop plus the harder mono treatment bring out the character in their faces.
