Photo and caption by Derrick Dong

Amidst a busy city landscape with tourist-infested piazzas, local children choose to make these sidewalks their playground. From street-soccer to splashing puddles, their merry-making fills the streets with liveliness in an otherwise stoic monotony. It brings to mind that without modern-day gadgetry such as PSPs and Iphones keeping our children at home, they too, could go out enjoy the outdoors. This photograph serves as a reminder that Milan is not only about its shopping and its monuments, but also about its people and their easy-going way of life.

Location: Milan, Italy
