Young boy tries to mimic me taking photographs at a school in San Jose, Costa Rica

If there is any photo I have taken that I would like to be recognized for, it's this one. My university's soccer team went on a mission trip to Costa Rica, and we worked with students at a school in San Jose. Pre-k through high school kids just wanted to be noticed and loved on, and even more so they wanted to be like us. Many kids were fascinated with my camera, and the young boy pictured found a camera and began mimicking my photographing.
