Portrait from India 1

By SteveHarry
I captured this in a school workshop. The sense of working raw is incredible. The welder being used here
was taped into two live uncovered wires hanging down in the middle of the room. No health and safety rules
in IndiaSmile but thats what makes it so cool and raw.

hi steve.. at first the welder's face got the whole of my attention.. then i realized it is about the funny way he is doing the work..
yes it is like that particularly in small units.. the fact is they dont many a times use their safety gadgets even if the employer provides them.. the same culture follows in our domestic and day to day lives..

your image is a wonderful representation of the theme.. many votes.

Brilliant, a rather unique photograph Steve, beautifully composed and exposed in such rather difficult lighting conditions.
