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!

    1. I’m so pleased you think so Tony. Looking at each one can quickly transport me back to the exact moment I was taking the photo. 🙂
