Traveling on Java in the late '80s in a small village
Two boys, around 6 years old, stood behind a picket fence.
One of them held a kitten by the neck fur trough the fence.
Boys behiind fence, kitten in front of the fence.
As soon as they noticed me, they stood stone faced and posed for the picture.
Unfortunately I had a 200mm mounted, so I got a nice portrait of the boys.
To go for the kitten, that still stroggeld to get free, I took down the camera.
The spell broken, they let go of the kiten and ran away laughing,
and I misse dthe shot.
Still today, when I see that picture, the kitten is always in...
And for (almost) lost shots
From that travel I returned with about 30 roll of film, and after processing and reviewing I found that kitten shot missing.
I searched all luggage carefully and retained that one missing roll, that at least provided the lasting memory of the little cat.
