Reply ↓ This is stunning Joshi – the look on his face is so intriguing… Reply ↓ Oh the depth of this one!! What can I say but ‘WOW’… The Chandanam on hi forehead… the white beard, the expression. You captured it beautifully. I read it somewhere…that when a photographer clicks portraits, he doesnt capture the essence and expression of the person, but he captures himself in it. Beautiful!

Reply ↓ Great Photography Daniel You are invited here http://wp.me/P1Dwwo-jn Reply ↓ Another strong black and white picture from you. It’s always such an inspiration to visit your blog. Of course what makes the picture – besides a face with strong character well captured – is the white mark in the forehead. It draws the eyes and keeps them centred to the face. I also like that the person is looking away this time, it makes him more vulnerable and more thoughtful at the same time. Reply ↓ It looks like those eyes have waited an eternity… Reply ↓ Nice. A good b/w portrait. I kind of like this one, may be because he isn’t looking into the camera. Might be. Reply ↓ awaiting someone :) nice one as usual :) —-DeepaK Reply ↓ You have an amazing talent!
