History has always fascinated me. When you are a kid, it’s not about dates and names and facts, but about heroic kings, beautiful princesses, dark prison cells and brave knights – and maybe a few dragons here and there. For these two children the swords are not historic objects, but proof that all the tales they have read are true. If you look at their faces, you’ll see the girl’s mouth half open, eyes lit up with wonder and the boy’s face determined, fighting the enemy right now.
You might have guessed that lighting was very poor – ISO high, shutter speed as long as my hand allows (the lowest I can , the image is slightly blurry. Mind you, the kids were as fast as lightning racing each other from one window to the other.
