Mesmerized

Tonight, my husband and I inadvertently came upon an arts festival in N.E. Kansas. We were quickly taken in with a talented street performer who was a drummer. While taking photos of him, I caught sight of a group of boys sitting on a dumpster above the crowd so that they could get a better view. I was enraptured with their penetrating eyes as they sat mesmerized with his performance. This is one of my few attempts at street photography.
This is super, Kareen! Love how they sit so close together and their expressions. Well done seizing the opportunity for this great shot!

Great shot, I must say I am always unsure about the rights and wrongs of photographing children. I often want to but am afraid I will be questioned. Well done to you, this is brill.
