The Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to capture an image of family. I lent my camera to Luvy when her mother returned to Ometepe Island for a short visit. Her mother worked in Costa Rica to support her family for most of Luvy’s young life. “Luvy, take some pictures of your family while your mother is visiting,” I said.
Family through the eyes of a niña…in her words with her photos.
“The night before my mother left for Costa Rica, we slept on the beach together. It was rico.”
“My mother is beautiful. She brings us many gifts from Costa Rica.”
“My brother, my nephew, and I sleep together. They like to wrestle and they wake me up.”
“We have one photo of my nephew, Oscar. He is proud of that photo.”
“Oscar doesn’t like to take a bath. He cries when I pour water over him. This is his favorite truck. I give it to him after I give him a bath and he is happier. ”
“My Papa is very old. I cook for him.”
“My brother, Julio, wants to be a veterinarian. He takes care of all the sick animals.”
“Julio is very silly. He was very tiny when he was born.” ( Luvy explained that Julio was like their smallest puppy in their latest litter…a runt.)
“He likes eggs. He is very good at finding the chicken eggs in the tall grass.”
“My big brother, Jose, is cool. He likes music, girls, and thinks a lot.”
” Here are my cousins. They live next door. We play together every day.”
“Congreja had puppies. She always has new puppies.”
“Julio took my picture. We don’t have a mirror in our house. I was showing him how to use your camera.”
