This shot was taken during usual photo-walk around the town. This place is interesting - a bunch of abandoned cars at the backside of a police stations. I guess these cars are brought there after some traffic accidents, but happen to be junked there when the disputes/claims are over or get prolonged. They also make a happy place for children to play around.
As I was passing by this, I saw this group of children. One was flying a cat (the part of which has somehow come into this frame), the other with her doll, one was generally enjoying others play, while this girl has something in her hand which fascinated her. Suddenly I her sweeping down, putting on this glass and looking into something (which I only later realized was a mirror hung on the sides of one of the cars). This moment would have lasted few seconds.
Luckily, I had camera on my hand and could catch her in this moment. Since I had to shoot within the clutter of cars, I might have included some things that that could possibly be included/excluded from the composition.
By the scores, so far, the response is luke-wark overall. But some of you have like this picture very much, and have cared to comment - to which I am extremely thankful as it puts the things in perspective for me, and gives me encouragement. I was happy with the capture, was satisfying moment/click for me; so thought would include this picture. :-)
