And So It Begins

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Sarah Huey

This is the first photo I ever took on a semi-professional camera, and I took it on my first day of a 6-month solo trip to India. I captured this image, of a girl and her baby brother, after she approached my rickshaw at a stoplight to beg for a few rupees. Because it was so sunny, I was unable to see how the picture turned out until I returned to my hotel. The moment I saw it, was the moment I fell completely and hopelessly in love with India. "And so it begins," I remember saying to myself. "And so it begins."

Location: New Delhi, India
