This shot goes all the way back to the first year of my discovery of #streetphotography - July 6, 2015 in #Mumbai #India
I was shooting at at Goregaon Station, where just over a week prior I had taken the shot which would eventually land me the cover on a magazine and launch my photography career. But I didn't know this at the time. I was only focusing on the interesting characters I'd always see at the railway stations, this boy included. He was with his mother, pictured on the left in the background. I was attempting to get a candid shot of the boy, who was fiddling around impatiently and trying to keep himself entertained while waiting for his train. After he spotted me, he channeled all his attention my way which doesn't help for candid photography in the slightest! Eventually, he moved up close and I started shooting anyway. As he moved closer, I could hear him mimicking the sound of the shutter with his mouth. He finally took up a posture on the railing and I took a final picture. His mother soon called to him and they vanished into the boarding crowd. One of my favorite "early" portraits!
