Though, all photographs are close to the heart of a photographer and I’m no different, yet we all have our own favorites!!! In this series, my favorite is the mother & son shot. When I saw the kid running while rolling the cycle tires ahead of him, I knew I’ve to capture it, and I immediately took out my cell phone, but unfortunately or fortunately the kid became aware & started running in the other direction holding his tiers……… hey buddy, I’m not going to steal your tiers, I just want a shot. He ran and hided behind his mother who in return stared at me with full suspicion, as if she was saying, “stay away from my child or else…………”.
Zoom in and you will get a better view of their expressions, the mother looking suspiciously at me and the boy’s innocent face. This appealed me so much that I clicked both of them.
Later when I narrated the story to my girl friend showing her the photograph, I asked her, “Do I look like a kidnaper……or a thief”?
She looked into my eye and said, “Yes dear, your are the thief who has stolen my heart”.
