[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this photograph was taken at the bank of the river Ganga, in Kolkata. to be specific, at Mallik-bazar ghat. the place as usual, was full of people of variety. mostly, religion oriented, the so called 'saints'. taking a dip in holly Ganga, having share in the smoke of 'ganja', and staying aloof of the outer world along with performing some religious rituals were some of their basic daily activities...
inside them they knew they were in some holly profession. but, people had very less time to ponder over that. or had no reason, may be. the once 'worshiped' race had turned into some bunch of useless lazy people.

and then,...
attracted by their 'different' get-ups, if cameras start focusing on to them, the light that twinkles in the eyes is no longer reflection, it's the 'warmth' of attention in which all the ignorance of life melts into a portrait of desire & agony.

Namaste, Ruby.A nice portrait of this gentleman in color with natural tones with excellent exposure and expression.The tilak on his forehead adds interest to the composition. My humble suggestion is just sign your name and avoid using "A photograph by" will be enough.

Hello Ruby,
Full marks for this beautiful portrait with its colours and character. Truly a pleasure to view. Best wishes.

PS: The text that says it is a photograph is superfluous. Fortunately your name does not detract from the image.
