This photo nearly spills off the screen – it is overflowing with glee, softness, and color. These are two friends in India playing on a cool morning. There is a childhood innocence present in the faces of the girls; one of those candid moments that is difficult to capture. The foggy mist in the background serves the foreground well: it adds great contrast to the girls and their colorful clothing, making them the focus while soothing the rough edges of the surroundings. It is a beautiful moment turned into a beautiful photo.
