It was a very hot day in Toronto and I was looking for a shot of someone playing in the water fountains at Yonge Dundas Square. I usually avoid photographing children for obvious reasons, but in this case I thought I'd take a chance at a more direct approach. The boy's Mom was the enjoying the water as well and they both looked so happy and relaxed, so I simply asked the mom if I could take a photo of her son. She quickly said "sure" and asked if I was with a newspaper. I told her photography was a hobby and after a few shots I gave her my card so I could share the photos with her.
Hardev and his mom are from Burlington, Ontario and were visiting Toronto for the day.
Hardev is #96 in my 100 strangers project.
