FEATURED in Southeast Asia March 2009.
An old image from the 1980s… this is one of my absolute all-time favourite kids images.
This is a hill tribe girl at Chiang Mai in Northern Thiland, dressed in traditional costume for tourists to see.
My wife had just filmed her on the video camera and was showing the playback video to her. While the child gets engrossed looking into the video viewfinder (at the bottom of the pix) I happily photographed her from all angles!
The little girl got all excited and kept saying what sounds like “Keleh, keleh”. I have no idea what that means, probably “Look! Look!”
She was so cute, we would have adopted her and taken her home with us if we could!
