The story behind this image and a life lesson.



I was walking around a trailer park shooting photographs in Boone, NC a few years ago when I saw three young girls and starting taking photos of them.


They approached me and asked me if they could take some photos with my camera.  I was obliged so I quickly handed my camera over to the older of the three girls.  She began shooting the other two girls.  

and me.


Then one of the other two girls took the camera and began to shoot the older girl.


and then this image happened. 

LESSON LEARNED:  Don't underestimate other people's abilities based on age, social status and race.
