I saw this precious little boy in the northern Andes of Peru. He was very shy at first, but curiosity got the best of him and showed himself from behind a door. I snapped a few shots. You could tell he was a very happy child. It was clear he did not have much of material things, but the joy expressed on his face haunts me to this day.
