Kid lying on grass

I was actually photographing a horse when I noticed this kid watching me in silence. He was very close to me, hidden in the grass and it took me by surprise, but I loved it more than the horse :) He was probably living on that hill, in one of the few small and very poor houses there. His dirty little face and also his innocence and curiosity were a very lovely combination...
