~ The Kite Runner ~
Got this boy with a kite in a hot and dry noon...
He is relaxing a bit during his play... This kind of play with kite is almost rare to see view these days, in the age of computer and video game ...

Hi, Subhendu, my neighbor again!
Oh, yes, this is very actual problem of the modern children. PC and video games like a drug for them.
Excellent choice of b&w solution, it looks like a document photo. Perfect quality, excellent portrait of a street boy.

Excellent portrayal in monochrome of the boy with Ghudi and latai.The culture of kite flying has disappeared from the horizons of Calcutta with our childhood some 30 years back.The boys of today don't have time for Bhogkatta as they have to spend more time for tuitions and PS3.Smaller towns may still have preserved it as it looks from your shot.Very well done.TFS.

I've read the book by Khaled Hosseini, and your photograph certainly rings bells, even if it's shot in another country! The b/w treatment is entirely appropriate, and I love the slightly fazed expression on the boy's face. Good composition too.
