Photographer's Note

I was drawn to some local kids playing cricket match on my usual afternoon photo walk about - cricket is considered to be a religion in India. Nothing better than the sound of bat on ball and even better when the
pitch is set in such green setting, but a far cry here - on dirt cemented alley in Jodphur Blue City. Typical kids are always wanting their pics taken soonest when they spotted my camera, triggering themselves to get more and more excited, everyone wants to be closest to the lens and clambers over each other to get into the shots. There is nothing like the innocent play of children to warm the heart as well as my lens and these fellas are always great subjects to shoot.

On the fly point and shoot, lens manually pre-focused and aperture preset at max opening to counter balance the low light.

Not the best far from perfect shot but the event cant be repeated and that's the joy of street photography ......

Setting: 16 mm, 1/30 sec, F4.5, ISO Raw 200, 1702 hrs
