  13. Hello Indrani!
    You post some lovely photos. This woman's face looks sad,especially in contrast to her vibrantly colourful clothes and wares

    Another fantastic portrait.

  15. She looks tired, even a little bit sad, she is probably a mother trying to earn money for her children. On the other hand, she is beautiful and elegant like many Indian women. I love India.

    i love what she's selling,
    i think i would've bought a trinket or two. ^0^

  17. Good shot. Probably they belong to a particular gypsy community. I was aware of their settlements. I need to refresh myself.
