The Curious Nature of Childhood

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Piyal Alam

I've always felt that humans around the world innately share similar emotions like me or like you. This picture was taken in a remote and rural village, Oworobong. I accidentally interrupted these children while they were gleefully playing with their hoop. Both were equally surprised and curious about my presence, but one child was very eager to greet me, while the other was a little reserved.

Location: Oworobong, Ghana
