Troubled Smile Of Boy

Boy laughing bitterly

The boy smiled when he saw me holding a camera

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Among the shabby dwellings near Yangon central station, there was a food stall. Although this area was crammed with the dwellings, some stores for the dwellers did business. And this food stall was one of them. When I came here, a boy was seated at a table.

A plate on which something like pasta was put was seen on the table. Burmese cuisine has various kinds of noodle. So I didn't know what it was. Anyway, he was just having a meal. At first, he seemed to be surprised at me who appeared suddenly. And he stopped eating without my intent. It could be an embarrassing thing to be seen eating. He started to put his fingers to his forehead with a bitter laugh. I might think he couldn't keep eating during I watched him.
