Photographer's Note

I've posted a couple of Barber photos already from India, but there's still room for more.

We are again back in Varanasi, its early in the morning with the sun just rising. As I looked around there were several men not only getting a haircut, but having their head shaved. I'm sure there's some religious element to this, but i'm not exactly aware of it.

Using my tele lens, I wanted to stand far back so I didn't bother the men, so i zoomed in as much as I could.

I quite enjoy this close encounter, it shows the strange trust we have with people. For example if I were to walk up to the man and ask to put my hand on his head like that he'd be very upset and worried - yet give a man a sharp razor blade and the title of 'barber', then suddenly there's an instant trust. Kind of funny when you think about it.

Hope you don't mind another Barber photo, thanks for looking.
