Baba Ji

This, I think, is my favorite picture from the trip.

 

He is our neighbour in our village, and he's been a friend to the family for a long time. The second I saw him I knew I had to get a photo of him. I shot a series of photos of him, some with his wife and son, but this was the best expression. His mustache, up on one side, down on the other. His pointy beard, with no hair coming from the sides of his face. His missing teeth. His 'parna' ( i guess that translates to somethin like a small turban). His hands, old and shiny. His shiny face, his droopy eyebrows. His pointy nose.

 

He's just too cool.
