Shot in the city of Pyay, Myanmar.
The little boy in this photo was playing with a spinning top with other children. Like other boys, he liked to play. Yet he got shy when he saw me. And he stopped playing while he stood motionless.
It might be uncommon to meet a foreign stranger to him. He looked at me bashfully while he put his fingers in his mouth. And he kept a firm grip on his toy. Apparently, he was too shy to keep playing in my presence.
