A happy "Himachali" Lady...with colourful attire

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 15 July 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This lady very kindly consented to have her picture taken.

When I asked her to smile, she burst out laughing - advising me not to request people from that region to smile for a picture....
Her reasoning being - when they smile - their eyes disappear inside the folds of skin and only two slanting slits can be seen - where eyes are expected to be....


Quite reasonable I thought, but after that, this lady couldnt stop laughing ...and it was a good 10 minutes before I got her to open her eyes for my picture....

At any rate, I found the experience an interesting one - clearly a very sportive lady - who was evidently very simple and happy.
