Photographer's Note

Although I still have shots to show from Paris and Malta, I keep going back to my India photos. I still have about 100 to post from here!

This was a moment i'll never forget. We were doing our daily routine of walking the streets of Jodhpur, getting lost and just seeing what comes naturally around each corner.

Thats when we stumbled upon this.
Here was this woman working so hard to lift the large heavy stones from the pile behind her, into the bags on the donkey.

What made me upset and confused, was what you don't see in the photo. Just off to the left of the scene were a group of men watching and laughing. I couldn't understand why nobody was helping this woman. Am I missing something here?

As a foreigner and tourist, I know better to stay out of it, and not get involved - that alone could get myself into trouble.

The irony of it all was that it was International Woman's Day.

Any thoughts you may have, feel free to speak up.
I'll post a WS photo as well, please take a look.
