Daily Foto: Stories from Panama-Kids on the Riverbank

Phodographer Miguel Moreno & Carolyn Lane along Chagres River, Panama, Aug 2010

Dugout canoes powered by motors need GAS. While the boat driver got gas, we got out the Dog Meets World printer and took pictures for these Embera Indian siblings and cousins enjoying swimming in the river. Once the pictures were handed out they all took off, staring at their first pictures to show their parents. Smiles abounded. The printer using rechargeable batteries allow for spontaneous DMW…even on a riverbank!
