Just a Moment – Portraits 2

This week’s post is the second of three posts of portraits I have collected from around the world. The first was “A Brief Moment – Portraits” which you can find here.

I believe that, through the act of living, the discovery of oneself is made concurrently with the discovery of the world around us.

  1. Some great portraits here!

  2. Fantastic and fascinating images, Ron. It’s hard to choose a favourite, but those three young guys in Calcutta, really made me smile. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Salvia, it’s has been fun gathering the images from the archives.”The Boys in the Band” is a favorite of mine too.

  3. Oh Ron! These are all fabulous! They remind me of some of Steve McCurry’s photos. Your photography is really inspirational. By the way, the couple from Thailand: a very typical scene here in China. πŸ™‚

    1. Cathy, that is quite a compliment, thank you. Selfies have gone global, that’s for sure.

  4. These are all wonderful Ron. But I must admit that the first one stole my heart and was my favorite of all. Beautiful work!

    1. I’m not much of a make up expert, but that guy was amazing. Thanks Tina

  5. Beautiful, every one.

  6. Great colllection. All keepers. Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks Jack. So good to see you here.

  7. These are just a treasure of portraits ~ such a diverse and beautiful cast of characters you have here. I must admit that the old lady in the Allahabad, India photo is most striking ~ her eyes seems to have a story that would be pretty fascinating to hear (actually all of these people must have a story that would be great to hear). Great series Ron, beautiful.

  8. Exceptional shots Ron! Each one captures a wealth of beauty and expression.

    1. The series has been great fun. Thank you Madhu.
