Gourd Musician by phil decocco

Currently unavailable for purchase

At the staging area to the Red Fort in Jaipur, India, where one switches from buses to little putt-putts for the ride up to the site, this fellow entertained with his gourd instrument.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Question: I’ve seen so many images of men squatting, or hunkering down as we say here. Is it custom, or..?
    Good capture, Phil.

    both in India and the Far Eastern places I’ve been, everyone hunkers down on their haunches to rest, eat, play instrument, etc. they’re quite flexible and good at it
