    I was shooting in a remote village. It's a small, dusty place with basic facilities populated by about 200 people. Moments before sunset, I found this lady collecting vegetables in her small farm. In this part of the world, a guest is still considered a form of god. Following tradition, she warmly welcomed me.

    We chatted. She told me a lot of things about herself and her family. She was delighted to see herself in my camera's LCD screen. When I told her that I am a doctor, she asked me to examine her but this 102-year 'young' lady was in perfect health and my medicinal skills were not required.

    She insisted that I should stay for diner but I had to leave. I was moved by this gesture. With a promise to meet again, we bid adieu.
    Thanks for your time. Cheers.

    The light in this one is sooooo special.
    And your "model" is very, very special, of course, too. Over one hundred years old you say she is!? Wow!
    (And you are a doctor "in real life"?)
    You photographers in India are so lucky people LIKE their photos to be taken!
    It is sooooo different here in Germany when they suspect all kinds of bad things from you the moment you take out your camera..........:roll:
