Bombay Badboys

On a mission trip to India with a charity that educates and feeds children living on the streets of Mumbai, I met these two boys. This was our second encounter after meeting them the day before. I guess the fact that we had shared a game of football made them feel a little more confident and playful. One of the boys grabbed my sunglasses, put them on and proceeded to parade up and down the street. It was a fun few minutes resulting in this capture as they turned around to face me. Although we spoke different languages we connected through laughter. It was a truly unforgettable trip.

Location: Mumbai, India
