He was just sitting outside his house door steps, after greeting and asked him thru our guide to take his some pictures. This man was very modest and collaborated with me, this was very helpful and made the shot as I wanted it to be.
I found this old women walking the narrow stony pathways at one of Turtuk villages, she was carrying a bundle of firewood. She looks tired and sat down to rest on a side dock.
It was the light and her teary eyes that drove me to approach and ask it was ok to take some pictures.
While driving from Kargil to Leh thru Leh-Srinagar highway which is considered one of the highest roads in the world. I noticed an old women walking lonely a long this harsh road; nevertheless, she gave me the time to capture some pictures.
It’s difficult to describe how harsh winter sessions are for the people who lives up high altitudes in Kargil, from the description of our guide, people here work very and intensive to gather enough food for themselves and for their livestock.
They collect wood to worm their houses and to cook their food.
I noticed that women play’s major part in most of the work in most of the villages I visited during my workshop.
