When people have no idea they are being photographed – their expressions are so genuine and reflective of their thoughts. The idea is obviously not to stalk people here – but capture those with interesting expressions.
In my first post I’ve tried to catch expressions of only children and give it my interpretations. Most of these pictures were taken at the beach save one or two.
This little boy was all speed when I spotted him. His excitement was palpable and he was all focus as he raced towards his father who was holding a balloon.
It took me awhile to get this girl to look into my camera. She was a bit scared, that I was signalling to get her to look at me – so I could get a picture of her. But her childlike curiosity did drive her to look at the crazy girl with the camera I guess!
This picture is one of my favorites, as it shows the yearning desire of her mom to provide everything for her child. She has access to many a toy, but not one belonging to her child. The child blissfully ignorant of the mother’s thoughts – seems to enjoy discovering one plaything at a time!
This boy is full of concentration as he holds on to the reins of the horse. He is equally excited and maybe a little afraid of the unknown. My guess is he will be a more confident little boy, once the ride is over.
As I clicked this picture the responsibility of the big brother was quite evident as he was taking his role as protector rather seriously. And the little girl was gingerly treading into the water secure that her brother would take care of her when the waves came towards her. Trust and Faith.
This really small kid was sitting by herself at a bench at the bus stop – not worried that her parents were nowhere around. She was immersed in observing the happenings of some passengers before they boarded the bus. By the time she realized that her parents were not there – they came back to find her.
Well, this brings me to the end of my first post under expressions. I hope to find more interesting people with wonderful expressions to record. They have no idea how special they are, when their mask is lowered!
