14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
two boys in the mountains of Matilda, Nicaragua

On a break from digging trenches for waterlines in Matilda, Nicaragua, a group of us climbed to the top of a small mountain. Among us were two little boys who lived there in the village. When we got to the top I noticed them sitting together and looking out across the valley. I couldn't help but wonder what they were thinking, what their dreams were, or what their future would hold.
