I never seem to be able to catch people in meaningful ways without them noticing. 'The nod' might work - must give it a try. I do a lot of travelling, but have never been to India (yet). I'm off to Oz and Kiwiland in a couple of hours.

Great details, love the framing and the way the viewer is drawn into the scene (like standing face to face with him)...the motion of the woman balancing a basket is a nice touch, as is the foreground finger. I'd walk on hot coal to have this in my pf

Stupendous image Simon. I think you've posted the colour version before but it works better in B&W - it's easier to focus on the individual elements and make sense of them. Well worth the UA's and more.

Loved the colour and now love this more. I like how the girl is in that little open framed area. Watching and wondering. ...........Sandy
Had to come back, regarding the finger, it somehow bothers me. Not sure if that's good or bad. It does draw me away from the girl and back to him.

Hi Sandy, yeah he is resting on a wooden stick, perhaps it not obvious from the pic, hence the weary. But thanks for your comments and observations.

Kind Regards Si.

My heart started pounding harder when I opened this incredible candid image. The composition, the tones, the detail, the clarity are all technically wonderful. But it is that expression in those old teary eyes that strike such a chord for me.
Hope to return and see an EC on this one - it's fantastic.
