“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz
so brave of you to even come close to him with a camera! Great character!
Thank you very much! I really appreciate the comments.
Nice picture! Looks like a very interesting personality 🙂
Yes, actually he was very friendly Great personality to photograph.
Great portrait Mark. Was he offering you a little? 🙂
Actually he did but we respectfully declined.
No doubt India was an unforgetable trip, yes? Nice image, somewhat scary character.
India is an incredibly beautiful country and if you enjoy street photography it’s an absolute dream. This person was actually very gracious and a more than willing subject. Thanks for taking a look through some of my photos and for your very kind words.
You captured his essence…thought provoking portrait indeed! Best, Robyn
Thank you once again. Really appreciate you taking the time to leave some feedback. All the best.
Nice portrait. When I was in India someone offered me to smuggle heroin hidden in furniture to my country. I couldn’t quite picture myself as a future, successful heroin smuggler, so I told them that I wasn’t really interested.
That is a very funny story and of course was a very wise decision. Thanks for commenting, speak to you soon.
This is what I love about portraiture. Your photo reminds me of the kind of characters that I draw. He looks like a man you wouldn’t want to cross.
Hi Ishaiya, thank you for looking around and for your gracious comment. You have a very interesting blog that is very consuming, lots of fantastic stuff. I took a closer look at some of your wonderful photography. Hope to speak to you soon – all the best.
Thank you too for taking the time to peruse my blog and for your wonderful comments, I appreciate it a lot, particularly coming from someone as talented as yourself 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
You too have a great day!
Thank you 🙂
and he did not mind you taking a pic of him!!? Exquisite portrait!
Interesting look to this guy. Tremendous street photographs throughout the blog.
Thank you for commenting and for taking the time to look around, it’s really appreciated. Have a great day
great street portrait… strong PoV and eye contact!!
what is he holding in his hand? he didn’t mind you taking his picture?
He did not mind at all and in fact was very friendly. The apparatus he is holding is a tool used to manufacture the drug. I’m not sure how he does it since he did not speak English but again he was very friendly.
Thank you Paul. He was a very cool dude and very welcoming.
wow. what a charming man. but you captured a great moment, as many of us in Europe dont see stuff like this
I can certainly say he and the environment was very interesting. It’s from a trip to India several years ago, a country I’ve been wanting to go back to. For a street photographer I can’t think of too many better places. Have a great day!
Yes, I can imagine. Its literally a different world. Your photos reminded me of the film Slumdog millionaire. Some scenes of that film were pretty shocking and definitely an eye opener. Thank you, and you too!
