Capturing Independence

independence2 450x305 Capturing Independence

I was randomly shooting at the Clifton beach for the independence day while this young fellow requested me to take his photo. I never say No to anyone while shooting, and the flag on his right cheek caught my attention.
We had a nice photo session, and i got one good photo that truly depicts independence. His smile and childhood shows that no matter this life has a lot of  hurdles, still  he is happily independent.

        Hey, Sorry i missed out your comment :) I understand for girls it is a bit difficult. But we can wait for a change and i know some girls who are actually trying to do good for this country. In your case i totally agree that parents decision plays an important role :) Good luck and you can always join me for this cause
