Schoolboys



India can either be a photographer’s paradise or nightmare. People LOVE to have their photograph taken, to the point that if you have any sort of visible camera, you’ll be clicking away non-stop.  Couldn’t resist these young schoolboys, who were delighted just to see themselves on my camera’s monitor.  The one with the topknot is undoubtedly a Sikh. Sikhs do not cut their hair and as a form of respect cover it with an elegantly tied turban. To keep one's hair is a commitment to accept the body in the natural form in which it was born, and to get rid of vanity relating to outward appearance.

Leaving tomorrow, sniff, sniff....

TO EACH HIS OWN
