Aloha Rudra,
"What a wonderful capture, the expression in his eyes and the clarity is sublime." I had to capture Robyn's comment because it is just what I wanted to say.
This is a sublime portrait and bless you for sharing it with us.
Aloha is pouring out of his eyes, hair and skin!

I would love to know what this man was saying to the other man. Do you know? Whatever it was looked sincere and deep. The astrologer is a beautiful subject. (Wish I would get my hair to do that! He made it look easy!). You certainly captured a "moment", Rudra. I'm sure I will enjoy your gallery if it's anything like this photo.
