(A Spectator at Mela Ground, Pushkar, India)
I have been shooting so many photos before but I’ve never paid any special attention when taking portraits. I never understand why photographers are so fascinated by portraits, till I saw her eyes in this shot. Though this portrait was taken slightly out of focus and I was also frustrated by the obscure caused by somebody’s hand, it is still one of my favourite portraits. I like the way she look at me. The face was full of expressions, and it was definitely a face with many untold stories. I stared at this photo for a very long time when I retrieved it from the memory card. I don’t know why. I felt like wanted to know more about her world, through her eyes.
I told myself that I would never ever take shooting portraits so lightly again!
