Why I picked this image: Look at this image and tell me if you see a strong story?

From a western point of view this is a bit of an exotic street image (look at the architecture framing the main subjects – nice job tnymo!). You see a man (probably the father) and a young kid interacting with each other. The kid’s gesture suggests that it is trying to make a strong point in the story to the father. The father is patiently listening. This is an ordinary every day life scene very well captured and framed. And it shows to me that even in different cultures we are still often very similar in our every day interactions. This is an example where street, travel and documentary photography meet.
