I took this shot when I was visiting the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India. On that day, I was trying to take photos of the main attraction, the Golden Temple, when I noticed that an older man had been following me for about ten minutes. Because I was a woman traveling alone and I started to feel uncomfortable, I turned around and asked the man if I could take his picture. I was surprised by how patiently the man was waiting for me to take the photo. Unexpectedly, the photo turned out to be one of my favorite pictures from my journey to India.
