The Cowboy from Toranmal

    Newer Older

    A young cowboy tends to his herd of cows and cattle in Toranmal.

    From time to time, I have put up photos of this beautiful land. You can see them in the set marked as. Toranmal

    This and other photos of more recent vintage are also on Facebook

    Not only is this place easy to roll around on the tongue but it has some of the most vivid memories and visions on my mind. From the abject poverty of the place to the young kids gambling with safety pins to the Nabakovian vision of a true Lolita. I have seen them all here.

      His look clearly explains the poverty being faced, torn sneakers, lean, dress may be he got a few years back...and congrats on explore - know you're not a big fan of 'explore' though
