Shot in the city of Malda, India.
The dry riverbed of the Mahananda River was spacious. Walking the place, I could see local people in spots. And the boy in this photo was playing with a kite there. When he noticed me, he stopped playing and came to me. He had a rough face while he held the kite string in front of his chest.
Looking at him, the taut string looked like a scourge. And the boy with a rough look seemed to be an exacting tamer. Maybe I was tired.
