Taken in one of the bustees (local word for "slum") in Kolkata. The place wasn't how I had envisioned a slum in Kolkata. I felt like the pied piper of Hamlin walking around. All the children desperate to get their photos taken. Being a white woman with a camera creates a lot of interest and I think I get lots of opportunities that would not exist if I was a man. Much less threatening. This little boy was so eager to get his picture taken, he was struggling to get rid of his friends who all wanted to be in the photo. Fortunately we managed to shake them off :)
