First came across this man, laying down on a dirt pile to the side of a busy road in Mamallapuram, India. As I walked closer, he caught sight of me, sat up, held his hands out to beg for money, so I gave him some coins. Then, I asked for one more shot and this is the result. This is such a common sight in India...

    Yes it is not only a common sight, but a huge photographic con. They know people want beards and headdresses. If you had spent a little more time with him, he would have spoken at least 5 European languages.
    Mammallapuram is the Torremolinos of India
    I am 61 and have lived here most of my life, of which 43 years have been spent in photography, and its development in society,and the universities which did not teach the subject before!

    Not taking away from your photo! You are not Indian! I would have done the same with a street musician in New York and funnily enough, I have!
