Last Day of School Holidays

"I really need a subscription to the Nat Geo magazine."

I love this photo by Steve McCurry of an unforgettable Afghan girl.
In honor of Alexander's last day of school holidays, we went to see the National Geographic 50 Greatest Photos exhibit at the Artscience Museum (Marina Bay Sands). Besides the photo above, there are 49 other great photos and remarkable stories behind those photos. You're still in time to see it...but just barely (it closes on the 27th October), so go now!
More on Alexander's long school holiday in anther post. In the meantime, if you're strapped there's always this all time favorite


  1. We went the other week and really enjoyed it. The later photo of her was equally stunning in a different way

    1. I agree, Bridget. Was really interesting to see the juxtaposition of the two photos.

  2. I remember seeing this picture of the Aghan girl many years ago. Her eyes are so piercing albeit beautiful.
