Photographer's Note

This photograph was taken outside the Baijnath temple. There was a poor old lady sit outside to temple and asking for alms. I found her hand interesting. It delivers her age, the tough life she lead. I put my camera to macro mode and shot this. A little sepia tone is added to enhance the subject.
Hope u will like the post.

There are several other temples on the banks of river Gomti which were built at the same time. These remind one of the rich mythology of India.
