This is Ahira

This is Ahira.


Ahira's dream is to go to a university and be a computer scientist or doctor or whatever her parents want.


Ahira is currently at the Batu Caves in Malaysia, just outside of Kuala Lumpur, walking up the hundreds of steps. She and her family are making the traditional Hindu pilgrimage to the peak, where she will light incense to Lord Murugan and other Hindu deities whose shrines lay at the top inside the cave network. While she talks to me telling me about doing whatever her parents want, her parents look on and nod approvingly.

    Beautiful portrait!

    Her face really tells she is determined! Of course, I'm sure it is about your conversation, about her future. Really nice how you caught it, as well as the subtle HDR!
  • Gino 8y

    HOLY CRAP!!!
    Trey - You may have noticed this, but I haven't seen it posted here yet, if you blow up the picture to the original size you (TREY) can be seen kneeling down (wearing white shorts and no shirt?) in the reflexion of her eyes.
    Too cool. Check it out.
