It was very crowded, and I had walked a lot, so I sat down in the middle of the market place on a low stone threshold, when this little girl walked up to me.
She stood there, looking at me for a little while, with a gentle familiarity as if she knew me for ages… then came even closer and sat right next to me… letting me take her picture without any hesitation. (Yes, the mom was very near- even ‘fixing her up’ while I was taking the pic – and I asked permission before doing so :) )
It was a very special encounter…

I was actually very pleased with how this photo came out. Because of my own low position, I captured quite a bit of the activity in the background, from a child’s perspective… :)
