Photographer's Note

This is Thangam. I have been seeing her near my apartment for more than one year. She must be more than 80 years old and nobody knows where she stays or if anybody is there to take care of her. She earns for her daily food by making broomsticks from dried coconut leaves. I have posted a workshop of her making the broomsticks. Maybe she gets 5-10 Rupees for every broomstick she makes. She comes in the morning and sits on the pavement the whole day making broomsticks and leaves by evening. She was very happy when she saw me with my camera and her face broke into a lot of wrinkles smiling on seeing her image on the LCD.
Btw, this is one of the first pictures i took with my new Sony f828 I bought today. Hope you like it.
