colourful autumn & children’s laughter
It was Autumn, and I was visiting family and friends in Finland. I kid I always used to hang out with in elementary school, but hadn’t seen for at least 10 years, contacted me and asked if I could come and photograph her children – she clearly wasn’t a kid anymore. Nor am I. Through the magic of the internet, she had found out that I take pictures, and that I’d be coming to Finland. Naturally, I said I’d be happy to come over with my camera.
There was a bit of shyness in the beginning, but soon enough the camera became overwhelmingly interesting!
Not everyone was shy, though.
… and shyness in children tends to evaporate quite quickly.
We set up some photos…
… but most were spontaneous.
I feel like I’ve accomplished something when I can point the camera at someone without disturbing their behaviour. I’m very happy that I managed to capture this scene, where my childhood friend comforts her upset daughter.
In the end, there was dancing and singing in the Autumn wind.
