124 | Kids :: Manila, Philippines, 2013

When I noticed these two kids playing on the sidewalk, they seemed like they were having so much fun. They were only playing with leaves and dirt, but by their carefree laughter, you could never tell. When the boy noticed me though, his face immediately changed into one of sorrow. He was so skilled, had I not seen his smile just moments before, I can only imagine my pity for the poor boy without shoes begging on the street.

Perhaps I should feel even more pity. It must take a lot of practice to become such a professional, and he was so young.
