Girl and Goat, Varanasi

Wandering around the back lanes of Varanasi I came across a goat lazing on the steps of a house in the afternoon heat. He gave me a look like he owned the place and I took a few shots - he clearly wasn't impressed. It wasn't until a curious young girl who also lived at the house came to see what I was doing, that a memorable shot was created. It's quite amazing that even in the most crowded alley ways of India, people still find room to live side by side with their animals - it makes for some very interesting photography.
Location: Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
