Some cheap Kodak negative color film
These pictures are from 2003. I toke my old Nikon FA on a trip to Cabo Verde.
I was at this little village eating beans and rice and drinking “grogue” when all these kids came over asking if I could take their picture. Of course I did it. I sat down and one by one they posed for the shot. Some displaying their toys, some just shy.
One of the kids kept aside from the rest. In the end all of the others went to him, they buttoned up his shirt and they persuaded him to have his picture taken.
Back in 2003, in that afternoon, gear and film never meant less.
PS: These are scans from 9 years old lab prints. I cleaned them up and give them a bit of contrast.
Please forgive my poor English
