Faces on the Street – Street Vendor, Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer, Jan 2012
Luck had a big role to play in this portrait. I don’t think I had more than two minutes to spare as we were waiting to catch our taxi to go to Khuri, when I popped in this vegetable market, saw this lady, thought to myself that she would make a very interesting portrait, went straight and gestured with my camera to see if she was Okay with me taking her pictures and she nodded to say it was fine. Sometimes you see a face and there is this unknown, sometimes indescribable (for my vocabulary, yours might differ) thing about them, like they have a presence. To me, she definitely felt like one of those !
I took the photo, thanked her and walked out, and all in less than two minutes. Sometimes you do get lucky !
