I was driving down to Agra- the land of Taj Mahal, when on the way I made a halt at a resort. As I stood outside the car waiting for my mother and sister to arrive, someone tugged at my shirt. I turned back to see who it was. This lovely girl stood, staring at me with her big eyes. She wanted to perform a small dance for me, in return for a few pennies. In stead I asked her to smile for my camera. She's a gypsy girl, who instantly captured my heart and countless others who have seen this image. It shows the raw beauty and epitomises an Indian beauty in a childlike manner.
Location: On the way to Agra, India.
