Child with bucket

On the way to the artist's village of Raghurajpur, the narrow road off the highway passes next to a small river which is being bridged. Labourers are dredging the river for sand to mix into the concrete: this boy is one of them. He noticed me when I stopped to photograph him. Perhaps he had never been photographed before, because he came over to see his picture in my camera and then went skipping excitedly around the work gang, laughing and telling everyone about his photos. I hope this gets back to him somehow.
