I took this snapshot at Mamallapuram. I kept on running into this school group everywhere that day. It became very amusing for them and me. So, I took a picture of them and as they did of me.

Hi Christina, very funny snapshot, I like all the different expressions of these boys. I like the fact that they really from a group here, all laughing and some taking picxtures of you.

very funny title, Christina. Expecting a shot of you as a subject anyday, now, on TE!
Crisp group portrait, et you caught also their comraderie, with the arms. Even the one behind comes in the shot because of his spreading out.

It's indeed always fun to capture these boys when they are in group, they were tourists like you at that moment, wondering around in Mamalla.
Good colors and sharp photo Christina.

Just cuaght this after looking at the PaW theme. Good idea and nicely done, though I think I'd have cropped the hand on the right.

hi Christina, very funny picture, great expresion on the boys faces, very good, well done!
lyblanc (102) 2006-08-08 16:39
such a funny title and a nice shot with good sharpness & colors (only the framing is a bit mysterious to me: why having cropped at the right side?) ; I read your introduction, no wonder that your fave photographers have all in common the same tenderness in their professional eye ; in this pic too, a lotta tenderness toward the human beings and the people you meet. Well done !
