“Hair” Photograph

Before taking this photograph I had never had the urge to brush or comb somebody else’s hair but for some reason looking at this picture makes me want to comb hers until it’s as close to perfection as I can get it. I did not have this feeling at the time, only when looking at the photo.

This reaction is unexpected and slightly puzzles me. Perhaps I have been conditioned by shampoo/conditioner commercials? Or is there something more fundamental about beauty and perfection?

By the way, she is a blind lady who sings for donations and she only sits in the middle of the road after it has been closed to traffic for the weekly “Walking Street” market.

Photograph taken at “Saturday Walking Street”, Chiang Mai, Thailand
