[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I saw some kids playing marbles in the street. Used my telephoto lens to photograph their natural expressions. They collect card boards throughout the day and sell them for living. Because of poverty, their parents are unable to send them to schools.

Bom dia Sufian
Excellent snap shot, with a good managment of light and timing.
An interesting composition.

I have not seen children playing marbles in years... only playing with electronic devices. I love the face and body expression of the boy. Great capture. TFS

Hi Sufian
A good capture. Not a scene that is common in Western countries these days, as they are all playing video games! This will make a nice B&W photo.
