Portraits: Young Boy Varanasi India

He was playing on the ghats (steps) along the Ganges River in Varanasi, India. In fact he wasn’t far from where the chatting sadhus were sitting.

His friends were flying kites but his interest was in my camera. He volunteered to pose. Clearly this young boy was not a novice subject and was comfortable in front of a lens.

Exquisite photo! What confidence, maturity, and charm. Let's hope he goes through his life with the same disposition.

Hi Lara,
Thank you. He was a peach. I bet he has grown a few inches taller since I took this photo more than a year ago.
