Faces of India – 196

A school girl at a ‘parade function’ of a school in Chikamagalur, Karnataka. This was taken during Independence Day functions at the school. She must be rehearsing now for the Republic Day parade function of her school for the coming 26th January.

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.

    What a great shot – she looks a little bored, but serious, to me. I love your photos of the Greek ruins in the snow. We live almost as far south as Athens, but because of our elevation we can get snow almost any time – July and August are the only months I haven't seen snow at our house!

  8. She appears to be serious and dedicated. Hooray!
