Punjabi Baby

By ade_mcfade      
Her mum followed me for 20 minutes, tapping me on the shoulder, begging and saying the same thing over and over....

I've been told by everyone not to give money

So jestured to take photos of the baby and then it would be payment for a shoot - rather than just giving cash for nothing...

That was my take anyway...

Very young by the look of it... not a great future either I guess.

Sadness shouldn't show in the eyes of someone this young - very strong, touching street candid portraits you've been uploading lately Ade.

So young but you can sense the desperation in her eyes.

India will make you cry...I was in tears a few times.

Great shot Ade...nearly making me cry again.

Hope you enjoyed the Sikh wedding, bet it was an unforgettable experience.
