Boys I Met In The Streets

The boys waited for me releasing the shutter

For the most part, the boys I met on the street in India were curious about the idea of having their photo taken. Perhaps the act of taking photo is not yet a part of the boys' daily lives. It's an extraordinary thing. The boys were caught up in that sense of the unusual, and as soon as they saw me walking around with an SLR camera, they would gather around me.

The same was true of the boys in this photo. They came right in front of me, watching my every move. They were waiting for me to take their photo. If I don't take pictures soon enough, I'll be scolded for being too slow.
