Faces of India

We managed to trek into a tribal village where we were suppose to see some Indian tribe that are residing in the village. As I have mentioned earlier, nothing primitive was found except the temples of the tribe. The people there are dressed in the modern clothing. I could not help to snap photos of this child who was sitting with two ladies (one of which I guess would be the mother of the child) who were busy sewing traditional patterns on a piece of cloth. The child eyes were very captive and here are some shots of her.

I'm really impressed on how you snapped the pictures especially on the child. It's so pure... no act at all which is beautiful..

What camera are you using?

Wow, Selba, I did not expect that you came back so fast to view my blog.

I am using a Nikon D70S camera. Not your ordinary compact camera but a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Relex) camera. Mounted on the camera I am using s Nikkor AF-S DX VR Zoom 18-200mm f3.5 lens, yes a mouthful to name the lens.

The orgiinal file size of the picture is quite big and I have used Photoshop CS2 to enhance and resize the photo.

Photography is my hobby and I purposely bought the above lens because I know that I will be traveling extensively next year and I need to travel light and that's why I require a wide angle to zoom lens all in one.
