My Spotlighted Images

Annierita & Annisabelle from New Delhi & Belle Ile, India

A strong picture, of this macho man, it's interesting to have his face and foot at the same level. Annierita

Rough, in the best way, and i love the contradiction between his air and the baby-like foot :-) Super portrait, seems he has a lot of "girls" around him to forget women ;))

Mamyni from Argenteau-Visé, Belgium

Superb portrait!
It supervises the customer….not possible to leave without paying!

@Mamyni: He is a customer Mamyni...this is a bar called 'The Bharat cafe' in Goa, situated at Baga on tha corner of the famous 'Tito's street' that leads to the very popular 'Tito's' unarguably the most popular and 'happening' restobar in Goa today. 'Bharat cafe' is a budget place where one can lounge around and watch passersby on the street while nursing a drink as the man in the picture is doing. The place is simple, basic but the food is surprisingly good.
