As the famous writer Frank Kafka once said: “Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
Along the lines of this quote, The Golden Scope found some really incredible shots capturing kids from all over the world playing and having fun with anything surrounding them.
All those photos show how the subjects portrayed – the children – are actually playing with simple things, such as water or trash, and even if they are dirty, sweaty or wet, they are truly enjoying the simplicity of the moment.
From the Americas to Asian countries, all the pictures included in this piece are capturing kids from different backgrounds, cultures and continents, all sharing one thing in common: the simplicity in which they can amuse themselves.
According to kids, anything is beautiful, fun and wonderful.
The reason why we chose to feature these photos and dedicate one whole article on happy moments in a child’s day, is because – first of all – it is absolutely fascinating to see how kids are able to create a fantasy world with, for example, only a hand-full of sand and a couple of sticks.
In addition to this, all the following shots are very artistic and beautiful to admire. Even if they are flat pictures of people – correct me if I am wrong – but they warm up your heart, as they capture moments of pure happiness in the simple life of a child.
