Flying Above the Ruins

By Potra  
My heartfelt gratitude to Moira and Malc for conceding their User Awards to "Waves". Taking pictures of the kids with their backs to me is a good way of not looking suspicious to the parents and saves me from a ruined posed picture. The kids pose as soon as they see a camera.

I shot these pictures during the days of Carnival.
There were battles between the students and the national guard 3 miles from the place where people were parading their kids in costume.

Another gem. So innocent, so optimistic. Adults see the irony and the tragedy, she doesn't yet.
