Photographer's Note

one of my first experiments, "shooting from the hip"... I knew I was likely to be told off if the shop assistant saw me taking pictures.

The woman on the right is the shop assistant and the woman on the floor is mum. The young girl looked like she simply didn't want to be there...

"when I was growing up"...my mum tried to enforce a rule, for my sister and I to wear Indian clothes on a sunday. This was annoying because none of the clothes even actually fitted due to the universal Indian sizes.

Nowadays, fashion has moved on a lot and there are many crossover styles, which suit the western environment. Also, ethnic styles are uber-fashionable and have been for some years in the west. Unfortunately, it took Madonna to wear some mehndi in one of her videos for the masses to stop taking the pi** and embrace this ethnic style...ITS EVERYWHERE!

See the rest of the theme here.
