A colored smile

Who ever visited India knows very well that everything is possible when it comes to amazing moments. I was traveling around Dharamshala and having a walk in the main market of McLeod Ganj when I was surprised by this man dressed up and maked up with all the colors gaining the attention of the whole market with his screams and ugly faces. Suddenly, he came towards me when I was holding my camera and he was looking really angry so I was trying to be fast. Surprisingly, he stopped in front of the camera, opened the most honest smile he could bring to his colored face and waited for my click.

Location: McLeod Ganj, Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, India
