Can you take a picture of me and my little brother?

I was photographing the old woman on my previous post when this little girl approached me and said ". . . Can you take a picture of me and my little brother?" I gladly said yes. She walked towards the city bench, put her brother in her arms, and point his head toward the camera. After I took two shots she asked me "Can I see our picture?" With a smile on my face, I accessed the display button on my Nikon D70 and showed her the shots. She smiled and said "Thank you!" and left walking along with her brother towards the other side of the road.



In here, she was kind enough to allow me to guide her with the pose that I like. Personally, I was humbled by the character of this girl when I met her. She did not ask for any money about me taking pictures of her and her brother. She merely asked for a picture and it was said in a very calm and respectful manner. In the back of my mind, I have this feeling that somehow, there are people who can literally show their old soul better than the rest of us. I hope she'll be glad once I gave her the copies of these images. Thank you little girl for helping me learn another great thing about life with your character and smile.

The landscape portrait is really great. The other is also fantastic but not so good...
I like the way you say these simple facts of Life Willie and I appreciate you thoughts...
