Cirque de Soleil in PNG. Kids in PNG don't have parks with swings & slides to play on, and the stern rope from the boat provides them hours of entertainment.

Shark Entourage. Not sure what the deal is here, I guess the fish feel safe as long as they can see the shark, and the best way to keep it in their vision is to stick with it.

Rub-a-dub-dub, three boys on styrofoam... doesn't rhyme, does it? This piece of styrofoam was like gold to these kids. They would wrestle all day to be Captain of M/V Styrofoam. I always wondered if they take turns to take it home to guard it?

This boy was showing us his dead bird, and that combined with the the name of the dug-out and the expression on his face... definitely a Canon moment... since I don't have a Kodak wink
