I was wandering the back streets of Varanasi after a down pour of monsoon rain, I remember coming around the corner and seeing this street. Everything was so colourful and clean after the rain, I wanted to capture it. I was setting up to take my shot when something magical happened, out of a door on the left hand side a young girl flitted out onto the street in font of me, it made the moment. It made the photograph.

Location: Varanasi, India
