Did you not see my pain ?

    The littlest flute seller. Part of the flute seller series.

    She tried to sell me a flute (which I declined).

    Later on in the afternoon, these kids (flutesellers) got excited over the camera I carried and were clamouring for their pictures to be taken. I took a lot of pictures of these children.

    Over to one side, I spied the littlest flute seller who sat apart (on the sidewalk) from the group of kids. She was playing her flute, and she played it very well too. On impulse, I took this shot.

    It was only later on in the evening that I finally got to view the large image on my computer. I was surprised to see the tears.

    I wanted to kick myself for not buying that flute.
