I think he may be trying to look hard-core, even when surrounded by all the colorful and silly balloons (grin). Nice, interesting photo. :)
vivid colours .... he's in serious business i guess :)
I love all the colors and his oh so serious face... or like other teens I know: "I canNOT believe I'm doing this! I hope no one I know sees me."
Ananda may be right but he may just be camera shy. In any case, his disenchanted expression contrast with all the fun and colors that surrounds him. Which makes me think how much does that job pay? and how come he is still on the ground when attached to so many balloons? When he flies off, make sure to catch hhim on photo, ok? ;)
thank you ananda, chennai, professor and eliane--yes, he was very solemn and very shy
