Women on the Street

The Goddess of prosperity,

The Mannequin in all her splendour (Gold),

The Woman with all her cares (Lakshmi).

Great photos. Each one could tell their own story. Like the mannequin who looks lost in thought.

Thoughts in Progress

Clarissa Draper said...

ha ha ha, Mason, you just made me think of that movie from the eighties called "Mannequin" Have you seen it? It's about a mannequin that comes alive. Stupid but funny movie.

Anyway, Rayna, your ability to take touching and wonderful photos amazes me.

I think the Saris (is that what they're called) are so beautiful. I'd love to put one on someday.


Jemi Fraser said...

Gorgeous - as usual! :)

I love the red in each of them - nice.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful photo's I love to see people and cclothes from different places,


Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ Mason - thank you. And now you are giving me ideas. Maybe I shoudl attempt a story for each of them.

@ Clarissa - I think I saw a part of that movie. A little silly, but nice.
And these days, you get pre-pleated sarees that you and get into without help- maybe you could look out for one of those. I love sarees - they make me feel so feminine.

@ Jemi - thank you. And strangely, I never noticed the red. But I am not surprised. Red is regarding as an auspicious colour by Hindus- brides get married in red or shades of red.

@ Yvonne - strangely, I never thought of this as different kinds of clothes. Maybe I should take take photographs of shop windows for you.

Beautiful photos. The woman with all her cares is the most beautiful, though. So much life in her expression... :)

Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ RA - I have to agree. The fact that she has lived a life shows on every line of her face.

Interesting assortment of women.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Sometimes I write haiku to go with my nature photos, but I've seen your drabbles and would love to see you do more of them with your street photos. You're so good at it.

Jan Morrison said...

Ellie said...

Gorgeous pics with such rich details!!!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ Alex - thank you.

@ Tricia - haiku and nature photos seem made for each other. I look forward to reading them. And I am going to keep writing drabbles to my street photographs- that is so addictive.

@ Jan - thank you. And I love you.

@ SueAnn/ Al/ Michele - thank you

@ Al - thank you.

@ Ellie - Can't really take much credit for that- India is a country rich in details.

Each photo has its own story to tell. Wonderful!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ Fiona - thank you. And each photograph may well have multiple stories to tell.
