Band of Brothers
I came across this band of brothers (there were 2 more who are not in this picture) somewhere between Zaventem (Brussels International Airport) and Leuven during a recent hike. We had gone for a night hike. It was 11:30pm when we met these boys. They were playing in the fields and on seeing on us ran to us. Probably they were amused on seeing a group of people, at such late hours, who didn’t appear locals. The boys got interested in my camera and wanted to see pics in it. I offered to take their photo. However it was not easy because it was already dark with only faint natural light available. The nearby street lamps didn’t help much. I had to take the pic using a slow shutter speed of 1/4s and it was difficult to keep the boys still :). But the smile, enthusiasm and the energy of the kids are worth more than a perfect click!
