One of My Favorite Pictures From India

Kids On A Scooter in India

This is by far one of my favorite pictures of India because I think it describes the young people there.  It is normally taboo to see more than one man on a bike in the United States but 4?  I think this shows part of the poverty that India is known for but at the same time one can see the fun loving nature of the people.  As I was watching them drive by the driver saw me and immediately leaned into the picture several times until I took just the right shot.  They actually ended up following us to our final destination and asked us to take pictures with them. I was stopped quite frequently in India to take pictures with locals.

  1. Like!! 🙂

    I love it when locals enjoy the camera. Easier for the travelers.
    Sometimes I hesitate when they don’t smile. ^_^
    I and my husband went to a remote village in the northern part of the Philippines and the first word I learned was their word for smile.
    Then i just say that word when I want to take a photo of locals.
    I think from now on, I will have to learn what the word for smile is in the country/place we are visiting. Will be a lot easier! 🙂
