Portraits: Adorable Kid at Channakeshava Temple, Belur, Karnataka, India

A travel photography trip took me to the Channakeshava temple at Belur recently. During this visit, all the group members (travel writers and photographers) went their own ways to capture their images. Even I was on my own way trying to explore this stunningly intricate structure that took more than a thousand years to build.

Adorable Kid 
It was late evening and the soft golden glow of the sun and the succeeding sunset kept me busy with my frames, angles, compositions and controls. I had been shooting for a while now and needed a break. No, not a break from photography, but a change in my subject to keep my excitement levels going :-).

Cute kid surrounded by colourful ladies 
It was then that I spotted this adorable kid standing amidst colourfully dressed elderly ladies. This frame was enough to grab my attention and I was happy that I would get to take some portraits.

This adorable girl also seemed amused by the camera man at work and seemed to oblige by indulging in a series of emotions. At times, I would get smiles, then I would get a shy look and then once she was done with posing, she would give me the normal look.

All these different emotions helped me capture my subject, this cute kid, in different moods and I think the photographs, do perfect justice to it.

A colourful moment! 
And when I got the ladies dressed in bright colours along with this kid and with the Channakeshava  temple in the background, I thought I got the perfect street photograph. This portrait and street photography session topped a great travel photography session for me at Belur.
