Swimming in the street

Swimming in the street

Your photo reminds me of how kids abound in the streets of Metro Manila, often with that unsupervised freedom that causes me to worry for their safety and well-being, and wonder if they even get a chance to attend school. Other times, I see kids in the streets who, despite difficult circumstances, still enjoy life the way only kids can.

Here's a shot of three kids "swimming" in the street in the middle of a hot day. I guess there was a busted water pipe in that area. They somehow managed to create a small pool for themselves at that street corner -- making most passersby smile, even if just a little, at this joyful moment of childhood.
