This photo was one I stumbled upon while on the National Geographic website. It was taken by Mahdi Dehestani. This photo captures the happiness of childhood. To a child, the world is not a scary place, but one big adventure. One of National Geographic 's editors, Alexa Keefe, says on their page for this photo, "from the expression of glee on the girl to her hair flowing behind her,
conveys the feeling of joy in motion. And I like that she is dead
center—right in the middle of the fun." I could not agree more.
