  1. What beautiful light on her face. I assume that’s reflected from the mirror she’s holding. Love the composition of this portrait also.

  2. Beautiful !! Reminds me of the Bharatnatyam pre- performance makeup I saw at Kochi in 1999. The colours have a meaning- white, black each mean something.Is Kutiyattam a classical dance format?

  3. Beautiful picture, and congratulation for the nine years of photoblogging. I have to say that I feel very happy every time you upload a picture. Even when I don’t comment, I feel inspire by the picture. I’ve read the article on wordpress, and I saw that you use a 28mm lens for portrait ?! This means that there is no rule in Photography, only intuition.
    All the best, Joshi
