Photographing children can be quite a delight : they usually have such mischievous, friendly, cute, unaffected and charming expressions : that capturing them on camera is a joy well worth the effort.

I was pleasantly surprised when this particular one was adjudged Photo Of the Week over at Bangalore Shutterbugs Flickr Group. I took this at the City Market where I had gone one Sunday morning on a photo shoot with a few others.

These three girls were standing beside the road, drinking water and I (thought I) managed not to attract their attention when I took it. Except the girl in the centre who looked up just as she was drinking. Which turned out to be a blessing after all, since she had quite a sweet expression on her face, just as she saw me clicking the picture!

thirsty, kya?

    I think if the subject would not have been looking at the camera then it would have been great πŸ™‚ I read this rule somwhere, I’m not sure.

  5. A natural and breezy picture!! Captures the rural scene vivdly.

    Last saturday I saw a two boys playing carrom. Not unusual but what struck me was that.. they were playing outside their hut, standing on knee depth water with a stool to support their board.
