Happy lane

Taken whilst walking in the back streets of the Mumbai slums. Some people are wary as to what I am doing there and others are more curious. Generally the attitude and mood is great. The explosions of joy and happiness is an inspiring and surprising contrast to the conditions. I was not able to get any more candid shots of this group because, in the mad enthusiasm everyone swamped in so close I couldn't properly take a shot. Or if I did, it most likely would have been a close up of someone's eye. Mind you, it's really uplifting when everyone wants to be photographed just to be in that spontaneous moment.
