The Story of The Two Fellas

As a tourist, the first two things I had had with me always when touring around Mumbai (Bombay), were of course my passport and guess what, my camera. Hubby's client volunteered his driver for my benefit. We were leaving Sanjay Gandhi Nature Park when caught by traffic which was common in the streets. A street boy, beggar, knocked on my side of the door. Honestly I could not recall if I gave anything, but I took a picture of him through the shield which made him stood straight to pose. Sometimes it's a relief when they go away after a very forceful encounter. To my surprise, he came back with another boy, and I realized, they wanted to be photographed. Humbling, but the smile and happiness in the boy's face just to be photographed was so pure,despite the black eye he got. Sad, but there were many of them fellas. I might have not given them something but I'm sure I made them happy, even just for a while. 2006

The most important thing is you made the boys happy.I had same experieince when i had my vacation in pinas last february,we're talking pictures with my family in the ship when we're about to dock to NASIPIT,agusan del norte,when those badjao looking at us & they said they wanted to be photographed too.So i took pictures of them too & showed it to them & that made them happy knowing they are in the pictures.Maybe they haven't seen camera such like mine before that you can see the results right away.But anyway it's a happy feeling inside of me that i made some people happy even in just a simple way.
