This lovely old lady is from a village in the Punjab in northern India.
Before taking this photograph I had lunch and then tea with this lady’s family. She did not speak a word of English but communicated her love via touch just like this. Photographers take note – pay attention to the relationships and the images will often follow.
Photographed on a Canon 5D with a touch of fill flash in November 2007.
