Mathura, India, Feb.13, 2009.

When I looked in my photos to find one that best fits in the Henri Cartier-Bresson inspired theme, I couldn't resist this decisive moment that I've captured last year in India. These cute kids, were jumping around before my camera and knew then that I should not miss the opportunity of capturing this hysterically spontaneous and genuine youth in action. They were vibrating, full of joy and fire! The colors add more vibes to the scene that is why I prefer it to the black and white version. Perhaps, this is my colored version of my Henri Cartier-Bresson inspired photo.

    lol Actually he was jumping and was running to be the first in the picture. They all wanted me to take pictures of them and he might have been their leader or something.
