While roaming on my terrace, trying to figure out what to shoot, I saw this little kid on my neighbor’s roof running from one corner to the other, then suddenly he stopped near a few lines of ropes, and was trying to tie a knot. The cuteness of the kid compelled me to think of a composition and shoot the moment. I quickly took a shot of the moment with my 70-300mm zoom lens capturing his expressions. The photo signified how the little children on the earth tied a knot of love around this whole wide world.

Swaroop Singha Roy – A shutter bug from Kolkata with a knack for music and wildlife. A funny, happy go lucky boy who loves to Love the beautiful creations of nature. The innocent animals have a special place in his heart. Since his childhood, Swaroop had this habit (maybe a bad habit) of snatching a camera from his dad and trying to figure out which button makes the “Snap” sound! Then, the day finally came when he got his first camera – yes, it was a film-roll one, and that was the day he realized he needs to do something big with this. Now, armed with his digital photographic stuff, he loves to go around the city, village or anywhere in this big beautiful world and shoot at sight. Photographing Animals is what he likes the most. Photography to him is a means of expressing his thoughts.
