One thought on “Children's Eyes on Earth”

  1. Simply amazing!? Scrolling down this web page of photographs in the early hours of this unusually cold October morning while sitting under a
    quilt with my Laptop was so uplifting; a meaningful glimpse into what young eyes are able to capture in a flash of a second for all time to come.
    My heartiest congratulations to all these contestants.
