Running with the mob

This week's photomeme at Shutterday is Mob. A few weeks ago in Sri Lanka, I was standing waiting at the gate to our hotel, and this group of school kids passed us on their way to the cricket oval. It all started very quietly, but then all of a sudden, it erupted into a battle charge. The light was not great, and I had my ISO set on 100, not Auto, so as they raced up the hill, I have lost some of the expression in motion blur - but I can't bring myself to delete them - these kids were just so happy. I hope they won the match.
