Another Indian Portrait (3)


Here’s another of my favorite people photos from India.  I took this photo while we visiting the Satpura National Park and staying at the spectacular Reni Pani lodge.  We had the opportunity to visit a small “settlement” where a few families had set up homesteads on government and private land near the National Park.  They had also cleared some of the land for their cattle and goats.  We visited this family in their home of wood and mud construction.  When we were there we met the  matriarch (featured in the photo) as well as at least two more generations of women.  We didn’t get to meet any of the men as they were working at a local town.  We were extremely lucky as I’m not sure you could find a more photogenic group than these ladies.  The Mom in the photo is thought to be about 70 years old and she was stunning with her necklace of antique coins and her numerous tattoos.  The entire family was very gracious towards us and seemed to enjoy having their photos taken – especially the younger ladies and their kids.  I’ll eventually post more from the photos I took of this family – I’m sure you’ll agree that they are all very beautiful and full of character.

    • Cheryl – my pleasure! I didn’t expect much from our little “village tour” but meeting and learning about this family made our day!
