This series comprises of snaps taken during my last year`s trip(2009) to Uttrakhand and few other places.
Spotted this old man @ Kushalnagar near Madikeri(Coorg) while shopping in the Tibetan market. He was gazing with amazement at me while I was trying to capture his face on my cam.
These porters earn their livelihood only during the summer season when the roads are cleared for the devotees to visit the holy shrine of 'Hemkund Sahib' situated at a height of 14000 ft. This one like many others had stopped to take rest at the summit. His eyes spoke more than I could even think of! Gazing at the white peaks with a worried and weary look while the freezing Himalayan wind blew across his face.
I still don`t know what this man was up to, sitting under a tree near a temple in Joshimath. He somehow caught my attention and I also did n `t hesitate to capture this moment in my camera.
Smoking along with a group of females there was an unusual kind of expression at her face, something portraying a deep sense of satisfaction. However, I was not concerned much about it at that point of time while I was on my clicking spree!
