Mufumay, Burundi - Africa
Much like the last photo I posted, this one again shows the simple things that these kids find joy in. There were a few boys standing around with their sticks and tires, so I motioned to them to run around me. Some older kids and adults stood to the side, cheering the boys on as I was snapped my photos. For just a few moments, they were the center of attention... and loving it!
There were a number of good shots from this interaction, but this one definitely stood out to me. Compositionally, he's right where I wanted him and his shadow is cast perfectly across the bottom of the frame. Having both of his feet off the ground really captures the movement, while his big grin and his eyes looking right at the camera tell the story.
