This is the third and final Mysore Portrait, which I made at the Devaja Market. As I recall, this gentleman was sitting several yards down, along the same wall as this person that I featured yesterday. The year went fast, and my memory is already fading. The EXIF data indicates that I made this photo on December 9, 2018, almost exactly one year ago. Another good reason to take pictures and blog about them. Years from now, at least I will have a visual and written account to remind me of this trip.
While I prefer yesterday’s portrait, perhaps today’s looks a bit more exotic with this man sporting a turban. India is a multi-racial and multi-religious society. From my understanding, the Hindus, which are the dominant group in South India, do not wear turbans. This person is most likely a Muslim or a Sikh.
I featured all three Mysore Portraits in my gritty street photography book on India, which I made earlier this year.
