Boy Playing With A Spinning Top

Boy winding a thread

The boy was just winding a thread

Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.

A spinning top was in his hands. The boy was playing with it. I saw children playing with a spinning top sometimes in Pyay. It seemed to be popular locally because I didn't see any boys playing not only in other South Asian countries, but also in other cities in Myanmar.

When I focused on him, he was winding a thread around his toy. And he smiled bashfully. After I shot, he started to spin a top.

By the way, he wore a T-shirt on which some English football players, Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney, were printed. The Premier League might become popular also in Myanmar.
