  1. Never had Bombay Duck before. It sounds like a delicacy in India…or maybe it is eaten all the time. Good shot. Love how the women is in focus, yet the Bombay Duck still shines in the background too :)

  2. Joshi, this is superb! It’s like your best black and white, but not (you know what I mean, don’t you?). The color palette is beautiful!
