How I got this shot has a very nice story behind it. It goes like this:

I was at the park trying to shoot IR (you can find a post from me about my woes in IR LOL) and then some street children got interested in what I was doing. Since I can't speak the dialect just yet, I used my gestures and smiles, and some basic English, to keep them at bay. As a reward, I promised one shot of them.

You just never know what circumstances arises out in the field shooting. Always be vigilant, as my friend says, and always have smiles. Because, who knows, they may smile back and pose for you :)
