Incredible capture – you can almost “hear” the stories of his journey through this lifetime etched in his face! :)
Wow, Joshi! :-)
Everytime I see a pic of Naga Sadhu’s its a feeling of mixed emotions. Incredible capture.
Oh wow his face has much character love it!
Thank you, Joshi.
You show me things I can’t imagine ever seeing in my life if not for your photos. I’ll be studying this one more. It’s remarkable.
Lovely portrait joshi. The eyes of the sadhu really are fiery. Was he mad at you when u were taking his photograph? And i am curious!! Who is a naga sadhu!?
Full of interest!
A bit out of the ordinary, I’d say!
Wow ! Great :)
captured the emotions in its full form…kudos
What did you do to get that look from him?
Wow, great shot !
I love the way you capture the emotions in eyes…
looks irritated too…… Nice shot
Another home run….great shot..:-)
Terrific pic :)
His eyes may look more questioning than menacing because his mouth looks so kind!?! Hmmmm.
A beauty! debatable if he look menacing though
Very intense eyes… super portrait shot, Joshi…
i feel like the Naga Sadhu is knowing all about me…like he can see through me and i don’t find him menacing at all. Perhaps if i was there i would’ve started crying…
looking at ur shots makes me wish…so many wishes. :) :) :)
A very good portrait of this man.
At first glance, he does look menacing. But when I look closely, he appears more concerned than menacing.
Cool capture. He looks really menacing
i hope he does not hear what you said :) he might get offended
Very effective shot in black and white. Excellent capture.
I jumped back from the screen as this image appeared. I think your title captures the essence of this incredible photo.
So many wonderful lines– in his face, in his hair. Great portrait, Joshi!
great portrait…awesome stuff as always
Love the detail!
Hey Joshi..read your interview @ BlogAdda…congrats…. :-)
A truly wonderful shot!
Wow, a confronting gaze Joshi, fantastic!
I am often in awe of your work. This is a powerful capture and still I sense a sadness coming from him. Thank you for sharing.
Emotions captured well :)
Sure looks menacing to me… Great picture…
I looked at your other photos of Sadhus, very interesting . I tried to see him in another way than menacing and he looks like he is thinking about something or taking on the suffering of the world. Do you talk to these people before taking their photo?This is an interesting sect.
Awesome work Joshi !!!
A very intense face you captured. It could be considered angry, as well.
Your photo describes him without words. GREAT !!!!
excellent capture! I love that you got almost all of his beard. That must be hard for him to keep clean all the time. And obviously in this picture it is not! hehe.
I read more, I see that he puts ashes on his body, must be a religious ritual. Very interesting
A beautiful portrait it is.
very apt title – my first words – woah!
Not a guy to mess with… excellent image.
Seems there are a thousand years in this man’s face. Very nice shot.
Hope you ran after clicking ;) Sure looks mencaing!
Did you ask his permission before taking the photo? Amazing shot :)
Absolutely impressive portrait! Works very well as B&W.
One more of those excellent black&white portraits of Joshi! I see a suspicious and not a menacing look though
Lot of detailes in facial expression. To me Naga sadhu represents liberation.
Very nice shot…..great work
Nice click…very dramatic.
Fabulous portrait Joshi!
wow! As always…love the shot!
Menacing & beautiful

I’m not sure what the story is behind this guy, but I’d like to know what it is!
That expression you’ve captured is gold. : ) Great photo, joshi.
Also, why do you give such controversial titles? :p *runs*
What a capture man!
Brilliant portrait! That menacing look.
Menacing is right.
Great portrait, intense eyes!
Great shot Joshi.
another winner portrait!
his face shows a rich sense of suffering
there is a story on that face that needs to be told … !
Wow … menacing indeed
beautiful portrait… disagreeing eyes..
Primordial, powerful –
Wow ! Impressive !
What a great portrait :)
A very complex face–great capture
Amazing capture. Loving your blog – saw in the about section that you also enjoy trance music, coffee and travelling? The best things in life!
Very powerful image, love it, well done!
An amazing & inspiring image!
Love this shot!!
Intensity is beautifully captured
Your portraiture is always breathtaking, and often thought-provoking as well. Menacing? World-weary perhaps, and wise. But definitely stern :)
Stunning detail! And the light illuminating his face is so beautiful! Well done! :)
you create such incredible, evocative portraits- bravo!
Very nice portraits you have here. I don’t see that look as menacing but the typical serious look you sometimes get with elders in that part of the world.
I have wondered how approachable the Sadhu are. This man certainly does look like he prefers his own company. Another great portrait, Joshi.
Hardly menacing. Simply stunning, Josh!
