Becka’s Boy

The Silent Observer

Despite the slight rain, I got engrossed with photographing a roadside scene near the Jvari Monastery in Mtskheta while my Georgian hosts, Becka and his family, waited in the car.  It was only when I was about to return to the car when I realized that Becka’s younger boy has been watching me all the while and didn’t seem to mind even when I started taking this photo.  Later at the restaurant, he struck another ‘deep-in-thought’ pose while we were waiting for our food (see “Holy Khinkali!”).
