This photo was taken on May 14, 2010 in 북아현동, Seoul, Seoul, KR, This was published in the Korean professional photographers association's magazine Portrait as part of a bio piece about me and my contribution to the expat photo community in Korea. They are preparing for the lotus lantern festival at Jogeysa. This festival is one of the biggest photo ops of the year for Korea. I have been over five times and have gotten some of my best photos from there. This photo became my most popular photo on flickr very quickly. I think it is because the kids are really cute but also because each one has a different emotion playing across their faces so even though they are all identical in appearance you can quite easily tell their different personalities.
