One of the Australian girls on our trek shows the kids the picture she’s just taken of them. Given their reaction, it may have been their first photo.

We found that showing people the images we’d taken of them served as an alternative connection when there was no common language. Most people really seemed to appreciate it.

kingratt82 Wow! This photo reminds me of me taking pictures with and of the little girls outside of Cebu Metro Cathedral (Philippines), and the little girls crowding around the camera, pushing and shoving each other to get a look at themselves. It was the coolest thing… and they didn’t want me to stop taking pictures. There were about 6 of them, and they would have posed all day just to keep seeing themselves make different faces for the camera so they could see the playback. Posted: October 19 2008
