Faces of India – 165

A young boy from Chettinad, Tamil Nadu. He was helping his mother to make the tiles at their home. Many families are involved in this business. They have their own tile manufacturing unit in their homes. No big machinery involved. He smiled shyly as I clicked his picture. I instantly smiled looking at this pic today. Hoping he will have a good future!

Picture straight from camera with slight cropping from below.

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

  3. This is a nice picture of an innocent boy. The forehead is not seen clearly but earlobes and ratio of two axis( ratio of line passing forehead to the cranium below the face and earlobe to earlobe distance)indicate sensitive and hardworking soul.
