You have this amazing ability to capture expressions of people - her whole body is involved in her meditation, and contrasts in both colour and position with those of the men behind. A wonderful moment in time caught forever...

This is a wonderful capture. You have brought so many images that I can look at of places and people so far away - that I can never hope to see. Your subject seems to be totally unaware of her immediate surroundings, and on another plane! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos :-)
