A young sweet girl of a poor neighbourhood.
Everytime I see this portrait, it reminds me how natural these simple people are ...
I asked her and she agreed, a bit shy uncertain at first, getting sudden such an attention but at the same time radiating an open innocent joy for us. From the age around 12, the girls are considered mariable and from that day on they are overprotected by the family till the day she marries. Almost unposible then and seen undecent to take a photo then by an outsider certainly a man.
Taken in the Petchiaman Temple near to the center of the city, a favorite place of lots of women.
I simply love the richness of heart these simple people gives you.
A sober portrait of a young girl, one in a thousand.
