Faces of India – 180

A very common road scene here, where you can see herds of cows, goats or sheep crossing your path and you will have to patiently wait till all of them cross over. Here is a shepherd in the outskirts of Mysore. This time I was prepared to shoot; the shot was taken from inside my car, hence a hazy finish.

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.

    Great shot as always, Indrani. He has a soft, kind countenance, for sure. I've almost got my collection of Faces of Africa in order. I hope to start a similar label as your Faces of India. Have a great day. Jo

  20. An innocent struggling look. Nice click Indrani 🙂

  21. Definitely its a great shot for those peoples who dont know about real India, Indrani . but for me, sorry to say , its common . I have seen it many times in my village. It looks like as my father, my elder brother or in fact me in my childhood. This is Real face of India and real face of an Indian.
