    Fantastic happy smiling faces .. They seem very happy .
  • ‘happy’ is probably an understatement, lillian – more like super-extreme-ebullient!

    It’s like they’re dancing out of a mirage or a page of history, and I love the sense that something is going on outside the frame. Just who is the girl on the far left laughing towards? Wonderful wonderful capture.

  • that’s a really wonderful way of looking at it AlliD – fantastic – it definitely has that feel to it, and in a way that’s exactly what is was like at the time too. Many many thanks – i love the new dimension you’ve added to the picture, and the memory too!

    Most uninhibited expression of joy of life, isn’t it? With not an iota of thought for the future..everything to do with the HERE and NOW!

  • that so insightful too* – and exactly right I think jothindra. Many thanks – I’m so pleased that’s what shines through to you from the picture. It felt like a totally spontaneous celebration – without the need to have a specific event to celebrate! (*see AlliD’s view above, as well)
