As I was passing through........

By sawsengee  
While wandering among the alleyways of the holy ghats of Pushkar lake (Rajasthan), I came across this hindu man wearing only a turban, loin cloth & a string of mala beads......I did not get the chance to find out more about him, his purpose in life or his spiritual attachment, as language conversation was a problem & he was in a hurry. Thank you whoever you are for this photo opportunity. Smile
THANK YOU to everyone who have commented, voted & to NeilSchofield for the GEA, Spkr51, RobboB for the UAs.......very much appreciated. GrinGrinGrin

He seems quite at ease with you taking his picture. I think he's pleased about it. And what a special portrait it is Sawsengee.

Hi Sawsengee
What a wonderful face so interesting. It's a pity that you get more information. He must had a great story to tell.
Take care and have a good evening.
