I'm shy, so taking photos of people is hard for me. At the end of my first day when my host asked me what I liked best about India I had to say it was the people. The food is great, the sights are impressive; but the people are magnificent. I knew then that I would have to force myself to take portraits so I could share that impression.
Fortunately, the people of India made it easier than I thought it would be. They were universally warm and open. I tried to be discreet, but usually that wasn't an option for a 6'5" westerner. For the most part, when they saw the camera they smiled and waved. I was often invited to pose with them and their families for their own camera.
