Brothers outside a local market, Quetzaltenango  (Xelaju), Guatemala (Photo: David Ryan)

Except for their shoes, their mom keeps them relatively well-dressed. The ever vigilant big brother keeps his eyes open while his little bro is checking out something down the way. They’re probably waiting for their mom or dad to come out of the market. They’ll have a story for them about the gringo who took a picture of them.

This is another example of those photos of people to whom I’d like to give a copy now that it’s more than fifty years old.

Usually people who view this photo won’t know how old it is and will simply think they are kids of today. I guess they might as well be.

The people of the mountain Mayans are some of the nicest I’ve ever met.
