This mother and daughter very obligingly posed for me when I asked if I could take their photo but they did take the episode very seriously. Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India

    Wonderfully captured Lee. Love your title.

  • Thank you Myra
    Much appreciated…
    it’s funny when you ask people if you could take their photo in India they won’t smile very often. It’s a very serious undertaking… They love that you’ve taken their picture, but smile????
    Cheers Lee
