[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After sitting for over two hours in the arena and watching the dancers and all the offical parts for the opening, I went for a small walk around the arena. These two girls probably thought the same a few minutes earlier. They found a good shaded spot and something to cuttle with.

Normally I would walk by these kind of situations, since it not something I like to photograph. But since I was at a Powwow and busy with my photographing Native Americans, I felt that I also needed to shoot this. It was actually pretty though to get this photo, The two girls were just too concetrated to notice me. But after I made a strange sound one of the looked up.

I love the colors first...

composition is great..

thanks for your post...

hi Niek :)

beautiful shot, niek
lovely colors, i like it.

Hoi Niek,
Je moet er wat m,oeite voor doen, maar dan heb je ook wel een prachtige foto. Mooie heldere kleuren. Werkelijk prachtig hoe het meisje rechts verstoord in de camera kijkt. Geweldig 'gevangen'! Alleen het frame vind ik een beetje iel en niet geheel in verhouding met de opname. Neemt niet weg dat het geheel toch 'top' is! TFS.

Hello Niek,
Cute situation captured!
Even if they don't exactly seem to love to be photographed...
I agree with them, the dog is more interesting indeed!
Nicely framed, telling a story in strong colours!
Pablo -

This is a beautifully captured story. As you can tell, the little girls were doing what all children love most. The dirty feet show me that they spend a lot of their time OUTSIDE playing not in an arena watching their families dance. Thank you - Julie
