Maumeri, Flores - Happy Village Kids
The picture above is taken automatically from flickr.com, if there is something related to the picture please visit and contact flickr.com
These boys were like commando force. They appeared from nowhere and got you surrounded before you even know of it.

Anyway, I risked myself climbing down the very slippery and steep slope to get very near to them. My driver has his mouth wide opened seeing me risking myself. Ha Ha.

But the sad reality was a boy got swept away by the rapid water on the following day. Residents from the whole village turned out to look for the corpse. I was very sad as I might have known one of them. We helped out in the operation but failed to find the boy’s body.

Still very sad thinking about that.

Amazing shot! Love the post processing - what program do you use? PLEASE don't tell me photoshop! lol ;-)

Island-Life : Unfortunately its photoshop :-(
But you can use Photoelements, Lightroom to achieve the same result.
Mio Cade 2009-03-25 06:50:36
LOL...yea, I figured! I've got elements and will try to find the, "lightroom"....

Thanks!

A great happy (and risky) shot with a very very sad end, Thomas !!!
You're always so 'involved' and that's the part I like so much in your personality.
Btw, got this before bedtime :o)
