The little boy was obviously more curious with the surroundings than the prayer for which he was brought to the gathering on the day of Id.

From the day I took up a camera, Henri Cartier-Bresson was my Guru and unseen mentor whose photographs guided me how to capture the 'decisive moments' of life , thus inspiring me in my submision of this photograph in the Photo Challange:Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson.

    If decisive moment was what you were going for, you certainly succeeded brilliantly. Very nice moment. Love the rich tones, too.
