ROAD TO VILLAGE
ROAD TO VILLAGE
Another winter morning village scene, I took last winters. Villagers are so simple and down to earth. It is always a pleasure to shoot them.

Paul Sikora     Rakesh, how am I going to get anyone to look at my images if you continue to put up these magnificent pictures, that both tell a story and are visually beautiful. I almost gave up

Happened to come upon this image while surfing. For me, this is a stand out image...absolutely beautiful. There are many scenes that I see while browsing BP...this one has an elusive quality that none of the others have.
