  1. I admire your not being shy about approaching an interesting subject for a photo. I need to build this up in myself so as not to miss great opportunities like the one you captured here.

  2. This is very nice with the intimacy. I wanted to share with you that I attended a ceremony with Indigenous and Hindu people at a temple here, my first time at a temple and very significant and historical event and impressed with similarities of the rituals in the spiritualities. Had a sacred fire, round dance, smudging, etc.Wonderful!

  3. Nice street photography… I also get urge to take such photos but then I hesitate and never take that shot. Just a curious question, when you take such pictures do you take a permission?
    BTW lovey collection of pictures…must follow! :)

      1. I think that it was really cool that she made a living of of that it shows that you dont need that much to live of of and when kids say that they need something they really dont.
