  • the best pictures we got on this trip were the ones the kids took of each other. mostly they posed, arms crossed, unsmiling. occasionally they'd capture a natural moment. playful. uncensored. the way kids are when no adults are around. the roof is where the boys went in the afternoons and they brought the camera there. their zone. i never went up. boys only. girls stay out.
