Faces of India – 157

A localite of Chandigarh, he was visiting the Rock Gardens, the day I was there. While I was trying to get into conversation with another tourist there for a photograph, this young guy requested me to take his photograph too. He stood in style, hands in pockets, a slight tilt in head, a faint smile; it is he who chose this backdrop for himself. I very happily didnโ€™t let the opportunity slip.

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.

    It's a very calculated pose but I like what it reveals about the connection between nature and humans.

    Very nice pic! Are you in Chandigarh just now? Hope you did not miss the walk aside the lake here! Its an ideal place for a walk. If you are heading towards Himachal I can suggest you some lesser known places with abundant natural beauty.

  13. This is one good thing with our country, people do not mind being photographed .. infact they like it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yet to visit Rock Gardens, Indrani!
    Nice pic. The guy didn't ask you to share the pic with him?

  21. Good you got a volunteer for your series – Faces of India ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice capture…. is that the artificial waterfall in rock garden ?

  22. Amazing that he requested that you take his photo! :))

  23. Nima Das says:

    He knows he is good looking,that expression says it all. Good capture

  24. Smart capture and so good of you to put the pictures of the faces of India, the AAM AADMI:)

  25. Asking for a pic to be clicked shows that he knew you are an experienced hand and good at your job. End result, he is online, you get a good pic and we all get to see it and enjoy it. ๐Ÿ˜€
