A saree seller in the market eyes me suspiciously.
I spent the better part of two full days lingering around hoping this woman would grow accustomed to my presence. She was unwilling to pose for me so I patiently waited around and prayed she'd fall into position framed by the arched gate in the background. Deliberate composition is crucial for these photos and I wanted to nail this one because she was easily the most beautiful Indian woman I'd ever seen. Turns out she's Gujarati and already married, in case you were curious.

Something about her perfect facial features and general demeanor oozed grace and class. In terms of composition, I achieved nearly what I had in mind with this photo. Two days work and only a handful of photos to show for it... That seems to be the way my photography is headed these days. Less volume, more deliberate.
