Faces of India – 126


Shot taken in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. Whenever I look at this picture I feel convinced that the people of hills are happy people. The picture was taken from a distance, they knew I was clicking them and they had this spontaneous smiles on their faces.

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here.
