I remember this guy from an acid trip I took in the 60's.
All kidding aside Miguel, Excellent colors and light management, with superb clarity and detail to your subject. For a beggar, he seems very happy and content, just as I am with your fantastic POV Miguel, great job!!

Une bonne question, est-ce un vrai saddhu :)
En tout cas, il avait l'air content de se faire photographier...je remarque qu'il devait avoir un problčme au pied et que le bambou faisait office de canne. Les guirlandes de soucis bien colorées ainsi que sa tenue contrastent bien avec les autres éléments.
Passe une bonne journée

I like this Sadhu aka beggar in dancing pose.He looks like a Narada Muni with his matted hair. It is a very funny shot with this man all smiling. Like the colors and sharpness.

no doubt, is a poor beggar disguised as sadhus just to escape the injustice of the caste...nice reportage...
have a good day...

Saw this photo a while ago, and had a long thinking what to write about: Can't avoid the strange appearence of the Saddhu, projecting what heared all about India, a real thing or a show to the many tourists? or maybe both applied.
The magnificent pic. posted reveal much about, the face's expression tell me he doe's act in a big play, local exhibition - yet, who knows? maybe live this way in real. And the holy cow on back adding to the ambiance...
Fine collected scenery.

Excellent photograph of an unusual subject.All that wonderful colour shines like a beacon in, from what I can see,is probably a very dirty place judging from the details you have captured so well.Love it.Well done Miguel.

Missed this one. The orange marigold flowers stand out well in this superb daily life scene. Good sharpness & the with the crutches or crutch is eyecatching. The cow at right is a good secondary focal point, & the blue shoe lends credence to the appearance is in in fact crippled with possibly one leg shorter than the other. Bon semaine!

nice the view of this real Saddhu as pose for you so charmy,with his smile to show us his perished teeth.
mcmtanyel (27964) 2013-05-23 17:28
This is a very powerful photo, but I can't bear to look at the missing teeth! :-))

a colorfully dressed person. He looks friendly, really friendly, which you can see in his eyes.
For a European like me an unusual sight. A very nice vivid portait of an unusual man! Very well done, Miguel!
Best regards from Sweden

In any case, he seemed happy to be photographed. I notice that he had to have a foot problem and the bamboo cane was office.
