He is a sadhu, a renunciate. It is a choice of life not a resignation.

In reply to:

inframan: This is an excellent example of the use of photography as propaganda. I'm not saying that what the photographer describes is not in fact what happened.

What I'm saying is that we look at the image & form an instant & visceral judgement. While actually knowing nothing about the woman, the husband, the incident or the photographer, we are ready to start a war amongst ourselves.

A great lesson. Now look at the image & ask yourselves how you would feel if you found out it was staged. Note that I am not saying it was set up, but it could have been. What then?

Thank you very much for voting this image into a winning image.

Still I am amazed that 4 persons voted with 0,5 and 1!
I have had few images ending second or third in challenges because of low votes... Every one can recognize a good image and still... funny world we live in.

I just wonder what thrill one can have doing it?

In reply to:

Zader: Awesome shot! Why do you say it is almost 'forbidden'? Or were you simply trying to say it was out of the ordinary? Where was this taken?

This picture was taken in India.

"almost forbidden"; if her father (maybe also a teacher?) would see her her smiling to a stranger (NOT Muslim) she would be probably in trouble...

It looks to me, that the 3 or 4 votes more than average are just a little bit suspicious?

Thank you Stefano for sharing your experience.
