While walking through a national park in Northern Thailand I came across a family of little boys frolicking in a sheltered lagoon. Tending them on the banks of the lagoon was a young woman who was likely an older sister. The filtered light created a dreamlike quality while the deep shadows provided a sense of anonymity and shelter. It conveyed a special aura of tranquility in contrast to the typical raucous enjoyment of little boys in a swimming hole.
