A traveller was once staying in a village of another country. One day,she held up her camera to take pictures of the children at play. Suddenly the young ones began to shout in protest.
The traveller’s face turned red and she said sorry to the head for what she was doing,and told him she had forgotten that people in some places thought a person would lose his soul if his picture was taken. She explained to him the operation of a camera for a long time. Several times the head tried to say something,but he couldn’t.
When she was sure she had put the head’s fear to rest,the traveller then let him speak. With a smile,he said,“The children were trying to tell you that you forgot to take off the lens cap!”
