Smiles all around

By bobbyl
I was approached by these ladies in a temple complex in south india for a photograph. In India you are often approached for a photograph or a selfie and here these girls, who were from a nearby village, told me they had never had a photograph with a "real" camera so could i oblige. The smile on their faces says it all. My only regret is not taking down their address so that i could sent them a print.

Think my ex went here last year, S. India, she sent similar pic but with less smiley people. Lovely to see. Is this at Auroville?

I know how you felt Bobby.......exactly the feelings and response I get while traveling in India. You did a good job on the group portraiture in spite of the backlighting. Smile

Brilliant, love this image. Well done for bringing a smile to their faces and for your camera, Bobby.
They may never know that they are now smiling for, potentially, thousands of people.
