It started out innocently enough.... I was wandering the back streets near Firdous Market, Lahore, meeting some incredibly hospitable locals, sampling the local treats and taking photos.
It's a poorer area of the city (locals call it a slum) that doesn't appear to have very good sanitation (💩) or running water. I had taken a couple of cool portraits when I came across this kid. No sooner had he stopped to pose for me the onslaught began!

And then there was seven!

I was like the Pied Piper of Lahore and my camera was my pipe....(Note: while there were plenty of rats in this run-down part of town, no children were harmed in the making of this photo series).

....and then things got totally out of control!

Just goes to show that kids are the same, all over the world, no matter their circumstances. .

As a government employee by day my job is to work within strict parameters and think ‘inside the square’. Photography is in stark contrast to this, requiring patience and creativity, something I have had to learn. A (very) late bloomer in the field of photography I envied the ease at which my wife could compose a photo; yet she struggled with camera settings, so I took over in order to document our travel adventures. Four years on I can’t believe people actually like my photos.
