How did you get this shot? Absolutely stunning in its capture!

This is the best portrait of this "celebrity" ear-cleaner.  You should give him a copy Mayank since he gave us all so many images...

 What is this fetish photographers have for gnarled old men!

Celebrity ear cleaner? Did he win Mumbai's Got Talent? ;-)

This is an excellent portrait - really gritty. I like the comment about gnarled old men. That will be me soon. Well done, Mayank.

They just make very interesting subjects with all the imperfections and the clouded eyes. Yes fetish for some. Old women are great subjects too :-)

Good idea. I will. Have one of another guy too, let me print one for him too.

Zephyr - he works as an ear cleaner near the Horniman Circle. He was waiting for a customer, his face had so many stories, that I went an had a small chat about his business before taking a picture of him. We were in a group so probably many more shot him and thats why Kaushal (above in comments) calls him the Celebrity Ear Cleaner. He deserves a prinout of this and i will go and give him one.

thanks magiceye!

@andrew - my guess is he must have been shot by atleast 15-20 photographers over last one week, ofcourse Kaushal knows better. As for gnarled man and shriveled women, we all are on the way.. lol
