Ok, it’s not really a snapshot but a quick street shot of a boy in Varanasi.
I came upon him by accident and noticed something about him that made me want to raise the camera to my eye. He showed a calmness that was a counterpoise to the craziness of the surroundings – motorcycles squeezing by, market sellers yelling their wares and arguing about prices.
The surroundings were ancient and his jeans gave a nice contrast. We were only a short distance to the Ganga and its crowd of tourists.
He posed for me, sort of, and I managed a couple of nice street portraits before I had to move on.
I’m going to back and try to find him tomorrow.
