Cut, Shave or Massage by Valerie Rosen

Met this barber in Jaipur’s Pink City. Since I had to need for a cut and a shave, he was anxious to offer me a massage, which wasn’t going to happen either, he was kind enough to allow me a portrait.

    Great photo Val. I’m having fun looking around this shop and am especially intrigued by those nifty chairs and their mechanism for adjusting the position of the back rest.

  • Cool, eh! Good to hear from you, Richard! Hope all’s well in your end of the world! :-)) v.

    Probably a wise decision here Val. His “salon” does give a new meaning to shabby chic thought! lol Cool pov too :)

  • Wouldn’t have minded a facial or pedicure, but he didn’t mention those! :-))

    such an interesting composition Val! hope you didn’t have a hard time convincing him a haircut could wait a little… and massage! lol but glad he posed for you =D

  • Actually, saying no here is quite easily received compared to other countries. In fact, he didn’t even pose. I was taken shots while we chatted! :-))
