(Thurs. July 5th)
Under the waning yellow moon, the village kids and I stayed out after dark playing clapping games and goofing around. Decibels rose as kids smacked each other in the head, argued, pushed, shoved and yelled to vie for their turn. These are the most relaxed, fun times because the camera is hidden away. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will not truly be able to capture the fun we’re having together, because of the “posing” that happens with the camera. For those of you who know my relationship with the camera, you know this is quite the necessary coming to terms. Picture or no picture, this evening of games and screams under the yellow moon is a moment I’ve captured forever in my memory.
