Photographer's Note

Going towards Tanjore in Tamil Nadu, India, we passed from a little village, one of the many you pass along the way. There were people gathered in order to watch this young lady performing a difficult balancing act. (I intend to post the whole picture and the close up too)
She was so young, tiny, innocent but so serious and concentrated. Her parents were watching nearby ready to save her in case she fell. She was performing on a tight rope 3 mts high. I fell sorry that young children have to go through this to gain some money, but perhaps the father was exploiting the girl's unique skills to get money and save his family from starving. Tough questions to answer and tough decisions to make , especially when you are watching this from the comfort of your sofa with A/C and a popcorn bag...
