Great ajayrawat 2009-05-07 5:50

Two disappointing things about this photo:
1. Such a brilliant photo and no note
2. this could easily have been Nat Geo's "photo of the year".

Jokes apart...brilliant photo. Full marks for composition, DOF, sharpness, colors and how beautifully you have got the character of the face which reflects India's richness in terms of cultural diversities.

Hat's Off!

Default To ajayrawat: Naga Konyak

The Naga are people living in the states of Arunachal, Assam, Manipur and above all in Nagaland.
Some of them are living in Burma.
The Konyaks are distinction Nagas, centering in the north of Nagaland, mostly in Mon district.
They have 6 Anges (Chiefs, kings) controlling all Konyak villages.
This picture was taken in the biggest konyak village of Longwa situated half on brumes land and half on Indian land.
Just old men are still tattooed, and in the following series Ill bring some of those wariers faces.
