“I took this photograph in Havana, Cuba in a playground across from the Malecón. It was a Sunday afternoon and the playground was very busy. I was photographing children on a slide when the two girls began to pose behind the slide. I went over and took a photo of them, then the boy jumped behind the wall. I took one photo of the three children, and then, just like that it was all over. They all ran off. Everything came together for this shot. I loved the girl with the red bow and colourful clothes, the golden light, while the boy with the shadow striping down his front just topped it off. It was my experience in Cuba, that when people see you with a camera, strange and often very wonderful things happen.”
