The Simple Joy of the Poor Children

My friend, Poca, asked me to take some photos of his aging mother before she died, so he could have something to remember her by. As usual, I ended up taking some shots of the previous old man and his nephew (in the middle) and his friends happy to smile for the camera.
They don´t have much but they have their joy and sometimes I think that´s enough.
I´d rather spend my time with little children and old men, it seems. I´ve never felt my age and I seek the wisdom of the elders while trying to keep a child´s innocent view of the world...
