I was walking through a lane when this boy emerged from the door seen behind. For some moments he was amazed when he saw I taking his snap. I took the snap, and went quietly reviewing his picture. Normally I would stop, if there is an eye contact, would show the picture I took, but this time I didn’t.
He is a worker boy maybe, living in that small house. Something in his eyes, I felt deserved attention. Now as I m seeing this image more and more, wish I could had a little talk with him then!
This is one place I believe, has tremendous potential for portrait photography. It’s a small-scale industrial area and a very small lane pictured above which leads to service center for our car.
Just at the opening of this little road there is a tea stall and there one can see a lot of workers with their bright yellow hats, strolling and sipping tea. Whenever I visit this place, I wonder if I can bring my camera and take snaps of them, maybe in groups. I m still gathering some courage to actually do it.
Nevertheless, when I don’t have my DSLR, I use my cellphone to shoot at people or whatever interests me. My phone is really serving as a backup camera, and I feel very comfortable using it. You know its more easy to point my cellphone at strangers than my bulky SLR.
ps: this page is really not doing any justice to this 16:9 format image. I would ask my reader to click on the image to see its larger version in my Flickr account, thank you!
