Camel herdsman of Pushkar

By sawsengee  
Outdoor portrait of a camel herdsman of Pushkar captured during the annual Camel Mela Fair.......personally, I do not encourage smoking or promote it but the picture only shows the daily lifestyle of the camel herdsmen smoking a local beedi.
Better viewed large by clicking on the image.
p.s. just got back from 37 days of traveling in northern India......battling smog in Delhi, avoid stepping on camel turd in Pushkar fairground & enduring a cold dip in the River Ganges in Rishikesh. Smile

I agree on the smoking, but great shot anyway - lovely strong colours in the turban and your usual top-notch processing.

Filthy habit, never could see the point of smoking either. Great portrait though, Sawsengee Smile
