Childhood Memories


A sunny day at the end of summer and a group of kids from one of the farming villages are playing in the dirt road in front of their houses. They are all wearing plastic sandals, not much different from those I remember kids wearing during the summers in California many, many years ago. Though mothers are keeping an ear out for the kids and checking on them, they have much less supervision than many children are used to these days. A few feet away another pair of children is pushing a baby in a wheelbarrow. I remember taking younger brothers and sisters for similar rides. Some things in childhood never change, I guess.

A perfect shot to capture the end of the summer mood, in Egypt or anywhere really.

I ran unsupervised and barefoot around my little home town. I still remember the feel of the hot pavement under my feet!
