Portrait # 1


The start of a series on portraits of the ordinary people you encounter on the streets of Bombay everyday. This is a vendor selling lanterns made of glittery paper.

Great shot - love the colours and the action in the background! And his calm face just peeking out from under his goods...

Wonderful picture here! And he's wondering what you're doing...and if you're interested in a lantern. :)

The colours of those lanterns are exquisite! I love how you've captured the movement.

Thanks Fiona, Elizabeth and Elspeth - the picture came out much better than I expected, so I had to share. This is a fairly common sight in India- what changes is the stuff the vendor is hawking. It could be paper lanterns, masks, toys, anything!
