Street Photo: Smiling Balinese Kids

There is something about me or my camera that kids around the world find interesting and/or amusing. Within a short moment, they turn from complete strangers to perfect camera models with different poses and smiles. A similar turn of events took place while I was watching a Balinese temple procession next to the Sukowati market in Central Bali, Indonesia.

While I was shooting a video of this temple procession, I noticed these kids staring at me from the corner of my eye and as soon as I turned around with my camera, they got even more interested and started posing for me. And like always, once they see the output on my camera screen, it just makes them pose more. But, what I like in this capture were the genuine happiness and smile on the faces of these Balinese kids. Each one has a different expression and that is what makes this photo special. I hope you like it too.
