    Love the second to last one. The yellow wall with the green hat…the shadows. That’s what captured me at first. But as I looked deeper, I loved the expression on his face…a kind and wise look about those eyes and those handsome wrinkles.

    Great observation Shireena. 40 years ago, i would think that men covered their head more. Is it because that men started to wear more western clothese, that they shed their topis and now it is a rare sight to see any of these. but in the rural areas i would think we would see a little more – until the concept of the coke has caught on !
