One my last day at Ilha de Mocambique, I wanted to wander around the houses that are by the sea. They form like a labyrinth, with every turn offering a potential surprise.
I ultimately found a narrow path between two houses, leading directly to the shore. When I got there, there were 2 kids chatting. They had a quick look at me, did not even seem surprised to see me there, and started chatting again, as if I was not there, trying to capture their shadows in the sunset.

Lions are organized in prides, led by a group of males.
Their role is to protect the group and its territory from other males.
When young, male lions (usually brothers) would associate to try to take control of a territory for themselves, by chasing away the other males and mating with the females. During that "conquest", the winning males would inevitably kill the cubs of the defeated pride, to guarantee the supremacy of their own genes.

During my last trip to the Kalahari (Kgalagadi), I witnessed two brothers trying to take control over a pride whose males were away: the females and cubs were left on their own.
Just after sunrise, the brothers got closer from the females, step by step. The females ultimately feared for the life of their cubs, and one of them decided to charge the intrusive males, followed by one of her cubs who probably did not want to stay on his own.
The charge was so brutal, fast and unexpected that the brothers were caught by surprise and had no other choice than retreating to escape from the fury of the protective lioness.

I lived in Paris for more than 10 years and have been traveling around the world for a while now.
So I don't get easily impressed by crazy behaviors on the road.
But I must admit that I got surprised by these funny little pirates in a narrow street of Varanasi (India).
I was just walking around when I heard like a storm coming behind me. When I realized what it was, I started laughing and had less than a second to adjust the camera and press the shutter!
We laughed so much at each other on that day.

"The magic of Mumbai streets". Two years before I met that little boy holding his younger sister, I had already enjoyed a moving experience in the very same street.
As I was walking around, taking some photos, I suddenly got surrounded by a group of kids who were soon pulling my t-shirt and asking for playing with the camera.
I gave them the camera and as they were inspecting the lens, I took the opportunity to press the shutter, without knowing for sure what would be in the frame.
It came up with an unique capture of their joy and excitement!

"The pride of Mumbai"
This week will be dedicated to portraits of children I took during my trips in India.
I remember walking through the streets of Mumbai a few years ago, chatting with people who were surprised to see me in the small streets far away from the touristic areas.
One afternoon I came across a little boy who insisted for me to take a photo of him. I was very happy to execute, and to share the result on the screen.
Just after looking at the screen, he ran away without a word and disappeared inside a small house made of wood and metal.
A bit disappointed he had left so quickly, I started walking away from the scene when I heard him calling me, running in my direction.
I was more than surprised to see him running through the crowd, carrying a baby, trying to avoid the flow of the crowd. I was so scared he would drop the baby by running into someone who was not paying attention.
When he reached me, he simply said "my sister", and looked at me with the eyes of a proud older brother.
I immediately understood he wanted to me to take another portrait, of him holding his sister.
I'll never forget the sparkle and pride in his eyes.
