Photographer's Note

I saw this lady sitting outside a Hindu temple in the city of Tezpur in Assam state, northeastern India. She seems to be begging, but she is far better dressed than any beggar I have seen in India, so I am slightly puzzled. Maybe her request for alms had a religious connection more than economic. All I cared for was anyway the balance of red and orange tones and the bas-relief of a goddess beside her.

Here is a larger version.

In the workshop is a photo taken a few meters away of another Indian lady and matching colours.
