this was taken on a really still/overcast morning. a friend told me that this picture was really peaceful.
i saw this guy from a fair distance away and i ran to get my camera. i had a feeling he would make an interesting subject but he really blew me away. we didn't understand each other at all, and when i showed him the shot, he just smiled- for all i know this is probably the first colour photograph he has ever seen of himself. my favourite shot of the trip.
lucy and sally asleep on our front door with not a worry in the world, and definitely a world away from a job!
cricket. i think this is the biggest thing australians and indians have in common - the love of this game. we were driving through the hills and i pulled over and had a bowl...he hit me for 6
