The Guards at the Door

    Newer Older

    Two Sari-laden beggars guard the door at Humayun's Tomb in Delhi.

    Later, while I was walking around Delhi, I was photographed by another Indian photographer that recognized me. He sent them along and it was kind of strange to see myself like that... but not as strange as when I was listening to Pink Floyd on 11 on my iPod while inside the tomb.

    odusseus, selmanaksoy, and 88 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Yes, they're not beggars but cleaners that works here. They do tend to beg when they see non-Indians. However, they're also careful that they don't literally do the begging act as they're not supposed to beg inside.
