took this picture, one of my most favorites, at Inle Lake in Burma.
The little novice was coming in from the fields with a group of other
novices. As he crossed a bridge, I indicated that I wanted to
take his picture. He readily posed. As I positioned my zoom
lens to get just the right angle, I moved backwards on the bridge.
I fell in a hole on the bridge. My leg went all the way down,
bruising and scraping it all the way up. Naturally, a dozen people
were in the area -- all laughing at (not with) me. However, the
little boy held his position and pose. He wanted his picture taken
as much as I wanted to take it. |
