A beautiful South African woman…

Just going through some files I came across an image I had taken 2 years ago at the International Festival at the Soka University in California. It was by fortune that I captured this amazing beautiful young woman from South Africa in her traditional dress.

Her smile and posing was just so natural, the way she was presenting her beauty was so intriguing to me, so that my camera did it’s natural exposure.

There is this image by the world famous photographer Steve McCurry he had taken in 1985 of  the Afghan Girl , published in the National Geographic Magazine, which went through the World Press.  By all means I have no intention at all to compare myself with the outstanding work of Steve McCurry, I truly admire his work. I  think it is just her pose and veil that reminded me of his image. Her radiant smile just took my breath away…..
