Photographer's Note

Yeah, I got photo bombed all right! :)

I clearly remember taking this photo and the events during it.

We were simply walking around in the blue maze of narrow passage ways of old town Jodhpur, getting lost, being found, getting lost again, its quite fun. And you never know whats going to be around the next corner.

I noticed this green door and blue wall/family home, so I was setting up to capture it. Then, as i'm looking through the viewfinder, happy with my composition, I'm just about to press down on the shutter, the boy in the middle of the 3 pops into my frame lol.

It surprised me of course, and then within about 3 seconds there were now 4 boys in my scene lol
They're like Batman! They come out of nowhere!

In the end, it made for a better photograph and better experience. So now I have 3 boys and 1 boy in the bg coming out of his home as he hears the excitement and is curious himself to see what's going on.

Worried that I wouldn't have time to capture them all in this exact pose (children have a short attention span), I just quickly hit the shutter. I wish the bg was more in focus with better depth of field - but as I said, I wanted to capture this moment quickly before the boys ran off.

Hope you like it
