Photographer's Note

This is my first photo taken in India enroute to New Delhi city centre from Indra Gandhi Airport. It was a fleeting moment shot from inside my taxi during a brief stop at a congested traffic junction. I've got a great cultural shock, you would see beggars going from car to car begging for money. This was a grab shot so there's no real time to think about manual settings -my usual preferred mode- camera quickly preset to aperture priority full opened at f2.8. Point, focus and shoot when she approached the open window. I trusted the camera to get the exposure about right which I think it has just about managed.

I know that, this human experience looks sensitive and ugly perhaps, it's not my intention to offend anyone but it's the reality of human episode and just a daily life.

There are glimpses of determination in the partially hidden face and the desire to survive that interest me....
