Thank you 🙂
What a great shot 🙂 Friendship personified 🙂
Thank you Anne 🙂
Yes, and they look so happy together… 😉
I just HAD to capture that Elizabeth!
I’m aware that in some countries, you’re only allowed certain colours for your headscarfs. These vibrant colours really shouted out joy! Beautiful and pure.
I found the people in Egypt were always smiling and happy! I hope the revolution does not change that.
excellent take on the theme, madhu. i love how their feet are touching.
Thank you Stephen. I too loved that casual connection.
I envy you Madhu, your pictures are so awesome but you get to see it live
Oh, don’t 🙂 You can see it too if you really want it and work towards it. I have no doubt about that.
A great photo for the them, very nice. 🙂
Thank you Mags 🙂
The setting, the colours, the different expressions on their faces…such an expressive image…one of my favourites in this theme so far.
Appreciate that Cinova 🙂
I love this picture. Thanks., it is wonderful.
Thank you Bente 🙂
Beautiful photo. There is nothing like the friendship of young girls…to talk about their dreams, and gossip about the boys 🙂
Thank you Angeline 🙂 Where did those days go?
The best of friends can sit around and do nothing and still have the best time. That’s what this represents to me. Love it.
Thank you Susan. That is what I was hoping to convey with that quote 🙂
The best photographers are those who, through the lens captures the essence and spirit of their subjects. Madhu, without any hesitation I shall say that you are among the best I have come
across recently! Wonderful capture. Stay blessed.

Really gorgeous photo, Madhu. Stunning colours, and you really captured a special moment.
Glad you liked it Ailsa. I was a bit wary of taking this shot, but took the chance and got that brilliant smile. Not sure what I would have done if her father had come out and yelled at me 🙂
Run? 🙂 I know, it can be tricky, but I always go with my instincts when deciding whether to take a photo or not.
Madhu this is a fab shot ..
I loved how they have these wooden fence just in front of door,guess on days when they want to keep the door open that small fence gives them some privacy
but i have never seen anything like that anywhere..its unique and so amazing
Or keep their livestock out perhaps! Thank you for your kind comments Soma.
I love it Madhu, great to see girls happy to be photographed in a Muslim country.
Thanks Gilly. I wasn’t too sure myself, but the girls didn’t seem to mind 🙂
Thanks TBM 🙂
Thank you Nelson!
Lovely friends photo, Madhu. These children look so comfortable together, and that’s what friendship is all about. 😉
I thought so too. Thanks AD 🙂
Wonderful photo of a quite moment between friends. The colors are also beautiful!
Thank you so much 🙂
Charming! Childhood friendships, how beautiful —
Transported me to my childhood, didn’t have to cover my hair thankfully 🙂 Appreciate the visit and comment.
fabulous shot, Madhu.
Thank you Suitablefish 🙂
beautiful. I love the carefree smile of the girl, and the seriousness of the other.
Thank you. The pensive girl is really pretty, although the other one scores with her personality 🙂
Oh, the power of a smile. 🙂
and thank you so much for the follow. 🙂 I appreciate that a lot.
Look forward to reading more of your posts, only I will need twice as many hour in a day 😦
I know. Most often, I do not get to regularly read the blogs I follow. When I get the chance, I read as many posts as I can and comment. 🙂
Great quote, beautiful photo! It says the meaning of friendship!

Excellent shot of friendship 🙂
Thank you Jake 🙂
Beautiful image and words. So, right, when among true friends, no words are needed. A friend can read the smile or cry of our hearts. Sometimes, we may not be there physically but we can sense that there is something wrong. The gift of friendship is priceless.
It is indeed! Appreciate your dropping by Islandtraveller.
I love this moment you captured Madhu! The colors are superb too
They remind me a bit of your children’s photos. But just a teeny weeny bit 🙂
it is a perfect image for this Madhu…I love so many things about it but mainly how it illustrates friendship from every angle
Glad to hear that Jo 🙂 Thank you so much.
Wonderful photo, beautiful girls and very clever words!
Delighted that Anette likes it 🙂 Thank you Anette.
Anette is delighted too you know 🙂
Excellent photo depicting friendship!
Thank you Fergiemoto 🙂
It’s all in “holding toes” !!!
It really is 🙂 Thank you for stopping by.
Nice shot all around. Beautiful colors…
Thank you Sue!
I wonder what their story is? It looks like a lovely, companionable, relationship.
Wouldn’t I love to know! They seemed so ‘normal’ in a touristy village and I just had to capture that.
Do girls have the advantage of education in those villages? Will they have met at school, do you think, or are they more likely to be cousins or some other close family relation? I love playing the guessing game! It was one of those shots, Madhu, that begged to have its particulars filled in:).
Thanks Snitch! Enjoyed your friendship post 🙂
Thank you Mike 🙂
