Look at my tissues

Mamallapuram

For years this lady is selling her tissues on the beach walking up and down passing all the hotels
looking for foreigners to give them a souvenir, always with a big smile never imposing herself.

So even after the tsunami the sails must go on although there are less visitors this year she still
has to feed her family.

Funny how she takes advantage of the sea-wind to make a lively show with her waving tissues
seducing costumers and maybe the world now.

love the way you made the portrait and used the colors here!! they made a great composition, with the power of the nature in the background and the woman very well integrated with them. Congrats!

Given our knowledge of how dangerous that sea in this place can be, this image is certainly an incongruous response, full of vitality and pride.
