This little mother ...

Madurai

Maybe you noticed already,
I mostly like to look for beauty of simple people in the street.

This little mother was a bit shy when she saw me wanting to take a photo, so I went first to her friends sitting nearby and they enjoyed this fully. That broke the ice and she allowed me too while she smiled shyly to her friends not being used to get so much attention.

As a weduwe with her white sari, she has to provide her daily income with the little salesware, here exposed.

I still enjoy her modest shy smile, you too ?
