  7. This is a picture that shows great detail. Love the display of emotion in the picture. When in black and white, it looks artistic and emphasis the emotion involved even more. In the picture, he looks like he is thinking, a philosopher. Fantastic display of culture from your country.

    Thanks for the information about Naga Sadhu. I’ve never heard about them until you told me. Wonderful knowledge to add on for myself.
