15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

This photo was taken when I traveled to Taxco, which is about 3 hours drive from Mexico City. The town Taxco is situated in a mountain with a population of 99,000, it is known for silver mining and production. Walking in the town aimlessly, I ended up in a mercado or market, locals sell vegetables, fruits, housewares, clothing and so on. I then saw these little boys playing on the street and adults giggling, I walked by them and I turned around captured this image with the boy sitting in a plastic carrier looking right at me.
