Young Mother with Child, Haridwar

Another photograph from my India trip earlier this year,  a young mother with her child.     I took several pictures of this stunning young woman who,  in her immaculate sari,  was a contrast to the location she was in with its dusty streets and paths.   Haridwar was chaotic,  with huge crowds of people present for the Kumbh Mela festival,  however, it didn’t stop the young child from sleeping on her mother’s lap.
