This was taken from my favorite vantage point in the streets of the Old City in Varanasi, India. It’s a traffic circle and the perfect place to stand a few feet above the ground to watch the hectic traffic go by. Cars, trucks, auto and cycle rickshaws all compete for space.
On the day this was taken I was still shooting with slide film. It wasn’t until I returned home weeks later and began sorting through thousands of transparencies that I discovered these two girls smiling at the camera.
