Kids of Amer town

(Posted in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Pure)

Amer town located 11 Km north of Jaipur city is famous for the UNESCO world heritage site Amer Palace. Amer predates Jaipur as capital of the region.

I shot following two pictures in  Amer town few weeks ago. I don’t know why I chose to shoot these two pictures. But looking back, I realized that I liked the innocence of kids and purity of their character. I was passing by  when I saw kids playing outside their home on a platform. I  pulled up my camera and clicked away.  I kept my fingers crossed while I was doing so, hoping that their parents don’t turn up on the scene questioning motives behind my photo ops. Luckily, nothing like this happened.

Kids were more than happy to get themselves clicked. It’s not always the case with grown ups who question your motives and you always have to take their prior approval.

    1. Peter… the issue in India is not about posting pictures on internet. The issue is people doubt your motives behind clicking, even though most Indians are happy with getting themselves clicked. But there are some people who won’t appreciate if prior permission is not sought. In this case, seeking a permission would have meant missing an opportunity to capture emotions and innocence. 🙂
