Lady selling custom jewelry and keychains at a market in India
We stopped and wandered around a small popup-type outdoor market on our journey through Southern India. This young girl sitting in her booth, partially obscured by the trinkets and jewelry she was selling, piqued my interest. I wanted to capture her beautiful eyes. So I positioned myself to catch her eyes looking straight at me in this street photography portrait.
The portrait of the young woman with half her face obscured adds to the mystery as we gaze at and judge the type of person she is. Her arms are crossed, and she is expressionless. Speaking with her afterward, she certainly was a well-composed, intelligent lady and quite charming.
