.. .. as regulars know, I was on a trek along Kurseong Dawhill-Mongpoo-Rambi(Rimbi) route, the obvious posts following will be from the trek.
Where ever I go, it is found great to capture people of this locality. In this part of India, the goddess of nature have made everybody/everything so beautifully that a large number of persons I met along the route/my stay at Mongpoo were babies.
These two were found to play on their tri-cycle all day long at the Nirmala Chowk [Darjeeling is 31kms away, Jorbangla 23 kms away from here]. At first they were shaky. I took the first shot. Shown them. And now they posed in front of my camera more curiously.
The best part is, on seeing this shot, they shake hand with me.

the face expressions of those kids are very funny, they wonder what are you doing with your camera. Very nice close up and sharpness.

An excellent close portrait Kaud
Incredible that they were shaking hands at the same time while the shot is perfectly sharp, I like the gaze right to us and you see that they are at ease but also problaby curious to see the result on your screen.
You show us a good way to be there with you .

What a great honest natural image... i like it a lot! They look in awe of your camera which is a great moment and expression to catch. It is cute how the boy on the left is not so sure and hiding slightly behind his friend which makes for a great composition. excellent! Look forward to seeing more of your work!

Nice to see a little of the background environment as well. Wonderful expression on the face of the closest kid.
