Photographer's Note

This was actually my first encounter with the indian way of saying "yes".
I've already read several times before going to India that the indian way of saying "yes" is slightly different from the way we usually do in Europe.
So when I asked this woman if I might take a picture of her...
she lightly shook her head from left to right and you can guess...
I totally mistook it as a "no". When infact it meant "yes".
Somehow suprised she was taking a pose I then finally remembered.
And when I got back to Switzerland it happened just the other way around.
Impressive how quick one adapts to new customs.

Thanks for looking!
