Photographer's Note

This was taken onboard a moving train from Jaipur to Ajmer with a crowd of beggars working the queue and this sad looking girl had a different take on how to get money off you! I asked if I could take her picture which she obliged but wanted a small rupees.

It's riveting to see girls in bare feet, no older than eighteen with some balancing sleeping babies on their hips as they'ree tapping people and begging. Every one you see pulls at your heart strings and it was a sobering and educational experience too.

I had all the time on my side henced enabling me to use my old manual focusing 50mm F1.4 Nikkor-S.

Photographic journey has an ugly side to it
Does this rear the arguement of exploiting her situation??

Setting: 50 mm, 1/40 sec, F1.4, ISO Raw 200, 1043 hrs
