Some images are serendipitous. I was charmed by the colourful bundles hanging on the branches, tied by people who came to the temple seeking blessings. I aimed my camera, and this lad immediately ran in and decided that he should pose for the camera. I normally don’t like it much when there is a distraction to a preconceived image. But this boy was adding a lot of life to an otherwise inanimate image. I was more than happy to press the shutter-release.
At Durga Temple, Anegundi. Across the river from Hampi.
