Encounter

By BURNBLUE  
Took the 'clockman' images in 2010 in Bundi India, but returned there in 2011. Went to the clockmans liitle house to see if I could take more images of him. However, his ramshackle house was locked and someone said that he had moved on. I hung my head and walked away from his house feeling sad and frustrated....however a week later by chance I walked past his abode again...and guess who was there...Wink

Thanks Maureen for award Smile, the clockman lives in an old town called Bundi in Rajasthan. He is a devout Hindu and seemingly lived for this religion. I believe he use to sell trinkets in a local market as his income.
