Indian Salute

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Stephanie Bower

Driving along the dusty roads of Rajasthan, our driver stopped in a small village to ask directions. This man came running up to the open car window and without hesitation, saluted us. With a camera always in my hand, I quickly snapped this photo, then dropped the camera, put my hands together and bowed in a Namaste response to him before our driver sped away.

Location: Small village road, Rajasthan, India
