This little girl had the most striking eyes I’ve ever seen.

‘Meenakshi’ means ‘one who has fish-like eyes’: Meena (fish) + Akshi (eyes).

The photo was taken on New Year’s Eve at Varkala Beach, Kerala, India. There were many Indian people on the beach and I went over to ‘hang out’ with them. This girl’s elderly grandmother asked me if I would take a photo of her grand daughter – I happily obliged!!

I showed her the photo on the back of the digital camera, and suddenly I had 20 or 30 Indian women surrounding me wanting to look at the photo. The nicest thing then happened – when they saw the photo, they all wanted to touch my arm. It was my most memorable experience during the whole 6 weeks.

    this is a beautiful portrait – her eyes are amazing – the green behind her just frames her beautifully – so glad you put this up in the portrait group as it has allowed me to see this for the first time. Great work
