    What a wonderful drama of light and shadow! Raymond Chandler in New Delhi?

    such an awesome picture. this brings back so many childhood memories, of being dazed and dazzled and awed and agog, at a country that mine and yet not…qnzbij
    gorgeous. thank you!

    and re – the bruhaha of the previous lady – surely we come to this site to see the world, and its many facets of style, as seen through the Sart’s eyes, not some rigidly PC socio-cultural analysis…

    To take such a good picture through a back window of a car must not have been easy!! Good job there. If the bike was a Vespa I would like it even more:-)

    I’ve looked at your blog for a couple years now, and have to comment on this picture. It’s absolutely breathtaking and haunting at the same time. You have a wonderful eye.

    Focus must have been right on! Often with that type of photograph the glass either gives your reflection or makes the shot blurred, which it did (a bit) but strangely just perfectly. great capture.

    Fantastic shot.

    Looking forward to more of your great adventure.

    [smiles] this picture made me think of some night rider going through a desert storm, lol.

    probably because I can’t see the picture clearly, and it seems to be foggy, shadowy or something.

    The bigger image helped!

    the ambiguity of the backseat passenger of the scooter is fascinating. such a cinematographic shot.

    Sart, IT’S OK to photograph saris in the daylight and show us some colour, really.

    I love how the headlights from the car backlight the man sitting on the bike. His shadow is also haunting.
    Amazing photograph. :0)

    Sart’s photography is about, inter alia, fashion. I am, however, drawn into the subjects’ lives more often than not (even Yoseminite Sam and Nonna, especially Nonna). The subjects on the bike represent a marked departure from Sart’s “fashion focus” to pure study of people’s lives: human existance, if you will. This photo, this space in time, provokes thought and passion. Difficult to quantify the interpretations: this is good.

    This is too much, Mr. Schuman. It is truly stunning. I love the way the back light is interacting with the front light, and the way the silhouette of the woman’s body can be seen under her sari.

    While your portraits and fashion photography has developed wonderfully over the last couple of years, your shooting on the fly hasn’t. This is a dreadful, messy shot. Poor composition. Nothing inspiring or evocative.
