[MyWorld] Instant Pose

I was paying them no mind, keeping my lens focused on the pretty scenery for which we had paused our road trip, but I sensed them hovering around me, curious what I was doing. When I was finished, I turned around and really saw the village kids for the first time. In the moments it took me to raise my camera, turn it in their direction and click, they had grouped themselves into this amazing pose. It all took mere seconds. Then I smiled at them and returned to our car to continue down the road. 

When I downloaded my new photos into my PC today, I was so delighted with what I got. What a group of sweeties!

Quezon, 2010

My world really was full of smiles this week, so I link with My World Tuesday and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Good god, they look and act just like the kids in this country! Same facial and hand expressions! What's this world coming to?

Cute, though!

what a great impromptu moment you've captured.
am I so totally out of the loop, or is there anyone else out there who does not know what those hand gestures mean?
