12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

This was taken in Ghana this past summer. During my time of six weeks there, I had the privilege of playing and spending time with my precious cousins. This snapshot of them all sitting down together was a rare occurrence; they were always full of energy, running around and playing with each other. This picture captured the joy and youthfulness that these kids clearly embraced. Whenever I was with them, I remembered how much fun it was to be a kid. It makes me nostalgic for the days consisting of playing with friends and having little responsibilities. This image is just one of the many instances where I witnessed pure vivacity among the people of Ghana.
