Sadhu of Pushkar

By sawsengee  
Closeup of a hindu sadhu in the desert town of Pushkar......mean looking with facial paintworks, but a gentle giant in reality. Street capture of him having tea by the roadside stalls together with a group of his fellow sadhus. Most photographers would shudder to ask him for his photograph because of his stern facial expression but I took a chance with a smile & my hands clasped with my uttering the word "namaste" (a respectful greeting). Smile

Excellent ee and well done. It must be wonderful to be so in tune with your environment like you are, it really is the essence of capturing the images that you take.

terrific character shot and life tells us that fierce looking persons with bulging muscles are the most harmless ones

A superb portrait - wish I'd known that greeting when there was an Indian Mela in Glasgow.
