Portraits of India

I took a lot of photos of the people I met in Amritsar and Delhi.

The people I photographed were so polite and humble. The kind old man with the balloons almost made me cry because he was so happy to hear that I wanted to take his photo.

Here they are. I hope you like them!

A street food vendor, selling savoury laddoo. He walks around with his portable cooking station, lots of passers-by stop him for his laddoos which are served with pickled carrots. Delicious.
