That's so sweet, children on the way to school or just to go home... Lovely shot Marilyn!

Best wishes!

Hi Marilyn,

Gorgeous photograph with the kids looking suitably angelic. I am really enjoying looking at the life on the streets of South America

Kind Regards

Kids is kids. They will always steal your shot.

Thank you, Ria, Steven, and Hank. I'm definitely not in my element taking "life on the streets" photos, but I was charmed by these girls and also struck by the contrast between the "angelic" children and the graffiti/mural.

I love this kind of photos very much, Marilyn! It shows life there not only because of the cheerful girls communicating, but also the background with the graffities and the shadow of the tree tell us a lot. It's as if we were silent spectators of the scene. Thank you for your impressing series! YS!

Best regards, May

Very nice!!

Marilyn Whiteley on January 3, 2010

Belated thanks, May, and thanks, too, Karel. I find it so easy to be wrapped up in extraordinary things (like this colourful neighbourhood), that I fail to notice the interesting but more ordinary details. I'm glad you like this.

Best wishes, Marilyn
