I took a look at William's photos taken in the MMC padang in Miri and I thought that a really good story can be pieced together by four of his photos.
A sea of heads and cameras. What can a little girl see? The waves of people are surging ever forward and ever stronger. The father has positioned himself well in the front line. And he may soon lose his position if he does not stand firm. He must hold his child up!! Do you see anything child?
An important person is coming! And Dad is so keen to bring the daughter to see the special person. He stretches his neck as far as possible to see if he is coming. The child shares his keen expectation.
The important person has arrived! The child is fully aware of what she is there for...and her waiting has not been in vain. She is elated. The beautiful lady is looking over her and the child smiles.
The little girl gets to shake hands with the important man. The father is proud of the moment he has created for his daughter. He is proud of the opportunity given to him. She is very confident and she gives a good smile. Well done! You will one day be a great lady too........
