The boy at the fort
I ran into this boy, the moment I was within the perimeter of the Chitradurga fort. For a moment, it felt like he had walked out of one of those Charles Dickens novels that often begin with an account of the humble, downtrodden beginnings of their adolescent protagonist. Seeing a camera in my hand, he requested me to click him. I obliged. He couldn't be happier. Nor could I have been.
Update: Sajith pointed out that the version posted here looked a bit out of focus. I've tweaked the original a bit and posted the sharper version. The softer focus (or lack of it) has been intentional a few times before, but here, it was clearly an oversight.
waah. kya sly grin maara hai. and check out the scar...
just curious, was this the only shot or the best one? i never manage to take 'human' expression ones too well.

Looks like a very tha-ra-le (naughty) boy ;-)

Is he slightly out of focus or is it my new spectacles? :)

Hi Wendigo.. this isn't he only one that I took, there are two more, of which I'll post one. I usually allow myself some time with the subject before getting the camera into the picture and that usually works :)
Hey Ash, I think the next pic will probably reenforce your assessment of the boy :)
Hey Sajith, I didn't notice it (come to think of it, I might be due for a visit to ophthalmologist) but now that you mention, yes I think it is a little soft. The subject must've either been slightly out of focus or it might be the noise removal filter I subjected this pic to, to clear off the graininess caused by shooting at ISO 400. Let me see if I can apply an unsharp mask and make it a little sharper.

The soft focus kid looked like a Dickens hero, the sharp focus kid looks like a potential angry young man. Amazing how much small things alter the big picture!
