Encantadores chicos...hermosa foto!
How nice,Marilyn.And they wear the right clothing...Would like to know in what they were interested.Ciao Daniela
So well catch Marilyn...I guess tehy will have time to find Geysers interesting...now they only want to play....a lot...
Thank you, Lucrecia, Daniela, and Alex. They were beautiful children and well-behaved, but climbing and looking around were much more interesting than sitting and waiting for the geyser!
A really nice and cute shot.
That it is funny.
What's so interesting about a geyser anyway? :)
Thanks, Syl, Bruce, and Wallace. I should give them credit: when the geyser erupted, they did watch with interest. But waiting? Boooooring!
By the way, the geyser erupts on schedule because at 10:15 the naturalist adds a bit of soap-like compound which breaks the surface tension. In fact, that's how the geyser was discovered: some convict/workers wanted to wash their clothes. They threw the laundry and some soap into a hot pool and--whooosh!! a geyser!
Thar's an interesting detail about to add some soap...uhhhmmm! :)
Yes, Wallace. I added the bit of history because, when I first learned that that's what the naturalist would do, it sounded a bit weird and very tourist-oriented. But for me the story makes it more acceptable.
Greetings Marilyn, what I mean is that I did not know that naturalists will use something like soap to make it erupts but never the less I love the details in the photographs because that's what make them interesting "the story behing the scene". And still it is a great picture. Wallace :)
Thanks, Wallace. I understood.
I wish I knew the boy's mother's name and address. I think she might like this photo better than some carefully posed ones! Marilyn
What a cute picture, Marilyn! Cheers, Anne
Thanks, Anne. I'm not a "people" photographer, but these boys were so delightful and so unselfconscious that I took a few while we waited for the geyser. And I was pleased with this one. Cheers, Marilyn
Ha, ha, ha... a photo is far more interesting than a geyser ;)
Nuce and funny picture and title, Marilyn!
Thanks, Erwin. The wait was somewhat boring. I guess that is why I started taking pictures as I waited!
I was thinking in the kids when I said "a photo is more interesting", Marilyn.
Anyway... good luck if was you the one who took it.
Best regards from Chile!
Yes, Erwin, I thought of that afterwards. Except for the brief glance from the boy climbing, they seemed not to notice me. (Some say that "old people" are invisible!) Cheers, Marilyn
Invisible like a queen dreesed as a farmer? Hope so!
