The boy got shy when I focused on him

While I was walking in Dhaka, a boy in a polo shirt came up to me. He seemed to be intrigued by the SLR camera I was holding. There are many curious people in Bangladesh. Many people come up to me when I walk around with my camera. However, just because they approach me doesn't mean they will talk to me, which is interesting. Some people just stare at me and observe me.

This boy was no different. He didn't talk to me, but when he came close to me, he was just observing me. When I pointed my camera at him, he tilted his head and smiled a little. Watching him, I felt like I understood why some people come up to me but don't talk to me. They are interested but don't have the courage to talk to me.
