Colour version of the Hindu Priest, Jaipur.

His temple was dedicated to Hanuman, the half man half monkey who was utterly devoted to God in the form of Ram. Throughout India one can hear devotees chanting the Hanuman Chalisa, a 40 verse Bhajan in praise of Hanuman's Devotion to Rama and Sita. This priest was stunned when I recited the first few versus and thus graciously allowed me to photograph him.

Thank you for the clicks, comments and positive feeback ladies and gentlemen, much appreciated.

This photo is special, well done. It seems to convey the character of the subject, let me guess good sence of humor, straight talking, and worldly wise (I like him already). I dream of being able to take a portrait of this quality.
