This eledery man seemed to be bemused with my photography he had spent some time watching me take the street scenes of Jojawar maybe wondering when the camera would be turned to him. There was always a twinkle in his eye and a half smile and as i turned to him and smiled - Yes? he said one more cup of coffee.
One more cup of coffee by Bob Dylan
Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky.
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie.
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above.
One more cup of coffee for the road,
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below.
(My last few posts are in Jojawar and not Jajupur as previously stated, this has been rectified after Angshu read the Hindi script yesterday)

Er zit een bepaalde welvaart in de man, ook iets aristocratisch. Zijn horloge, een pen in zijn borstzakje, heerlijke details. De pose is heel mooi neergezet, hand voor zijn baard, maar bovenal een perfect scherpte en kleursetting...heel neutraal, maar heel erg mooi.
Prettig (lang) weekend,

A very good portrait style photo, with superb detail against a dark background with no distractions. This also makes the colours look superb. His pensive expression is beautifully captured in this tightly cropped piece. Good title, too! Great work.
Best wishes for the Easter period.

This one caught my eye. Really a great feel, with lovely natural colors, and perfect clarity. Great textures to his wonderful assemblage of cloths and colors. His direct gaze works great. We were in Rajastan in late February, and have some similiar photos. That area I found to be really great when it came to the "Turban" look. Nice work, cheers,

Please, one more cup of coffee picture Elaine, because it's so charming and well framed. It seems it has been taken a very long time ago, except that the golden watch says it's up to date

A beauty of a portrait dear Elaine. Cup of coffee, you say? In Rajasthan, not tea! I find that surprising considering coffee is more prevalent in South India. Excellent clarity as we can see each of the creases on his forehead!

A beautiful portrait with well matching special colours. Fine contrast with the dark background. Great clarity and detail and your photo proves how well colours can be rendered without direct sunlight.

This is a very refined portrait, flawless exposure and excellent composition. it seems he has a good taste of colour. The dark background rendered faintly makes him stand out irresistibly. Impressive work indeed!
Have a nice weekend, Hisashi

a good portrait, where this deep look of the person is seen, excellent the definition and beautiful details.
holmertz (50766) 2009-04-12 2:09
Truly a great portrait, largely because of the man's watchful eyes. As usual the colours have come out very well, the light is good and the sharpness excellent.
patdeph (35748) 2009-04-15 1:07

I'm not good in portraiture but i can tell this is an excellent one. the framing, composition and colors are all superb. Thanks for sharing this one, i've known that Rajasthan has the most impressive and colorful turbans of India and this photo proves that. Excellent shot.

The anticipation and charm is quite obvious in the way the man is sitting and his gaze. The exposure is very well and the composition fine.
Thanks for sharin
