I'm taking the cue from Chessa! and posting one of my favorite pictures of all time. I have to preface this by saying I have ALWAYS LOVED taking picturs and have longed to take photography classes but have not had the opportunity to do so. Right now I just have a little Canon point and shoot but I dream of a big "pretty" camera....This picture was taken three years ago and something about the moment just literally caught my breath, I feel the same way EVERY time I see this picture. I adore the brightly colored sari's and I wonder what these women were thinking about on this hot summer day. I myself am a little lost in my own thoughts today so it only seemed appropriate to share this image.

Wow, the second I saw this picture I remember a picture I took a long time ago. I was visiting my dad's so-small-its-non-existent village in India, and there was this old village lady, dressed like villagers would dress in the 1950's, with the dropping ears and the pink cotton sari draped all around her. The picture told a story!

Thanks for bringing back such a fond memory with this great picture :)
