A few decades ago, children playing outside was a common sight, even in Bangkok. Among the groups of youngsters roaming each neighbourhood, there tended to be not just friends but also siblings.
Back in those days, apart from assisting with household chores and running errands, bigger brothers and sisters also helped their parents take care of the younger ones, in and outside the house.
I took these photos several years ago in a village in Laos' southern province of Champasak. The young girl in the main image was having fun with other kids while happily doing her duty as the elder sister.
These pictures always remind me of Thai society in the old days.
When travelling, it's not unusual to run into many faces. While many just flash by, others linger on not just in your memory but also in your memory cards. It might be a person, an animal or even a non-living thing.
If you have taken a picture of such a face with a story you wish to share, a face with the eyes looking directly at the camera signifying that the shot was made not against their will, feel free to email the photo and a brief text to [email protected] By the way, the minimum file size is 2MB.
