I shot this photo while attending a street photography workshop held by Charlie Kirk and Eric Kim. First time I ever attended a workshop for photography and yes, it was totally worth it. Great fun and learning experience. Anyway, we had these one on one sessions and while shooting/learning with Charlie, he told be to walk down this really nicely lit alley near Istiklal for a couple of times while exposing for the highlights. And very shortly before I thought "That's it" a saw this guy walking past me with his son (I assume so at least) and a balloon in his hands. So I followed, snapped along and as the kid turned back and smiled at me I knew I had a shot there.
