Photographer's Note

I was walking somewhere in Hanoi when I saw these boys playing video games. I walked past the doorway but I knew there and then that I had to take a photo. Got the camera out, took a few steps back so that I could see them again and click. I had to crop this photo somewhat since I must have been leaning a little so as not to be too conspicuous. The photo that was developed commercially was overexposed, so I did some brightening of the scanned image, got rid of some blemishes and lowered the green tonality. What struck me about this scene is how children around the world have become more sedentary, less creative and have lost to a great degree the closeness with the adults and their familiarity with people's lore- the nation's stories and beliefs, the things one picks up by listening to the elders. Where are the elders here?
