A refreshing bath


Taking a refreshing bath on a hot day (35C) in the watertank of Mamallapuram.
Look at his hand .... indeed we created as tourists that spontaneous reaction of begging even for taking a picture. This happens a lot all around Chennai even on the country-side. He is not to blame .... we are.
Last day, that night my flight back home.

Stunning shot.. The composition.. color.. everything. Deep story here. The look on his face.. with his hand poised that way.. an automatic response. But what gets to me is the reflection of his face. It's as if it's grown even older.. belongs to someone else.. Very well seen and taken. You have an eye

This is an awesome image. The man's expression, reflections... you have done a great job.

Very nice portrait. I like the color depth and detail of the composition.
