Photographer's Note

Typical fun loving kids, a lovely universal subject who always wanting their pics taken and there is no exception here in the old quarter of Agra which I truly enjoyed. This curious girl was very excited about the camera looking straight reaching towards my lens and this shouted out fun and spontaneity followed by few bursts of shots. So basically just a wacky take without time to compose, point and shoot lens manually pre-focused. Not everyone's cup of tea perhaps, but just a simple humanity subject that I really love capturing wherever I go with my camera. It was also my luck to press the shutter button one seconds earlier... seconds after that, her hand would have blocked the lens. But I was just happy with the way it was.

I know it's not a perfect picture, is dead centre or anything as the shot presents itself but, I was so delighted to have caught the shared moment. There is nothing like the innocent play of children to warm the heart and off course I used the LCD screen to show them the result which evoked a joyful response and the whole process built trust. It’s just plain fun and this is one of my favorite parts of travel photography.

The smiles and natural reactions are priceless

I wish the world is kinder to them as they grow......
