  3. Now that is picture I have been looking out for my next piece in the Hunger series--the reality of why India has so many hungry. We have hungry not merely because of lack of money or lack of food, but often times because of lack of space to cook the food or fuel to cook it! A great shot, Magiceye--captures the moment and the profoundness of the state very well--specially as a monochrome!

  5. Es ist immer wieder schön, am frühen Morgen solche Art Bilder zu sehen, aus einem fernen Land, das uns hier in Deutschland im Alltag so fern und auch fremd ist...
