These young women were so engaged in conversation that they didn’t notice when I slowly approached them for a picture. A nosy photographer, screaming school children, and a jam-packed bazaar seemed of little or no concern to them.
I smile looking back at this now as it’s such a testament to female friendships everywhere. The need of good ol’ girltime is truly universal.
