Who’s he ? An actor?
No…runs a candy store.
HA ! ! That’s even better ! ! ! ! I wouldn’t be sure about him if he was an actor.
Great character. Is there a deeper profile?
That’s the tormenting part of the story, I agree, should have spend some more time.
I’ve come to love these brief but fascinating windows onto these people’s lives. An anecdote, a piece of wisdom earned, a reflection… a discovered truth.
I like his glasses and his shirt!
…nice lips and chin too
I’m sure, he’d similarly mention things and notions about you and more….
😀 fun and funny 🙂 Nice job, Arjun! Are you happy with your trip?
Always happy to be back with a story or two, could have done more, better….How have you been?
He just looks like a grownup, but probably has a childlike mind.
I was taking picture of another man when I heard a very very funny and unusual giggle. I found him.
Running a candy store.. Sounds like a good line of work to me 🙂
Yup. More or less works on the lines of running a blog and some money too 🙂
Plus you can eat some of the profits 😀
The mischief in those eyes!
That’s where he gets caught. No candies for him!
Looks mischievous : )
Hm, seems had his ears pulled quite a few times 🙂
Exactly !! HEHE!!!
I can appreciate how he loves kids and stays away from adults. Children speak a language that makes the heart take flight.
Thank you for a lovely comment Yisraela.
I am really enjoying these small word *snapshots* and wonderful portraits you are doing Arjun-this one just hums with life and energy!
So am I, in awe of these souls, spirited. I try hard to speak less, conscious they’ll find out the emptiness in me or perhaps…
I love these stories you tell us AJ. This guy is a smart guy, children are the best company. 😀
You have made the most amazing photos. 🙂 😀
This is hilarious. My life in juxtaposition. Last 12 months on blog was only about me, in every picture and poem and look what has happened Ela! They’ve taken over me 🙂 😀
of course i am the cynical retired-shrink……
“loves kids, avoids adults, runs a canday shop.”
accompany your kids to the candy store.
of course this is in my country, where you have to accompany kids everywhere.
kinda sad isn’t it? that i view the candyman with suspiscion…….
It can’t go worse than this. Isn’t it? I hope soon we’ll take a turn about. It is always a circle, I’m told.
‘Cynical’ you are, but thanks to a few posts of yours that are imprinted on my mind, an over-statement, but I wish to claim, I’ve had a glimpse of who you are, hiding behind blooms and birds….Cynical you are, i wonder if that’s the reason you travel extensively, wander some say, soul-searching?!, in your case for others, self if no takers, who says you’ve retired?
Lovely portrait. There’s a lot going on in his expression. Did you buy any sweets?
I lack alertness, a fluke who finds most stories not on ground but after a few days, on my laptop. There must be god, for aspiring photographers at least, thank god I took one ‘sweet’ picture of this man if not sit next to him and find more of his life.
Evocative photo and provocative prose. One wonders about the story behind him.
A big mistake. I’ll go find him again. I must ask and hear and share.
Not a mistake– the sign of a good post. One wants to know more.
Pure in heart… Lovely photo.
Great portrait, captures his spirit. Seems like he has a kind heart so he’s in the perfect line of work.
He looks like an interesting character. I wouldn’t mind running a candy store sometime. 🙂
Is that you Bagga ? Finally one photo of the owner of this interested lovely blog, and candy man or not children are beautiful they are our future 🙂 !
Do you give free candy?
straightforward, he’s the CaNDY mAN, (i HIT THE cAPS LOCK BY mISTAKE, AH ME OH MY, 🙂 )

Thinking of you too my friend. and looking at your post dates wondering how your time is being filled. Whereas I know how I fill mine, (kettle boiling n’ suchlike) you are missed of that I am absolutely sure,
may inspiration bear,
it’s utmost for you and me

Doing nothing. They took my laptop too along with the kettle. A passive smoker, my laptop, crashed. I quit sometime back. Some claim it seems a case of withdrawl symptoms but i think of you and i do miss you, a lot.
You okay? Emailed you awhile ago but no answer. Am in a low. No words, just rehashing old stuff or little things here and there. A low ebb. Miss you. Hope you are okay. 💜 Ellen
Dont be low Ellen. My apologies, i missed your email
ah, Laptops, they sit there, taking everything in an’ giving nothing away…Mines never smoked tho’, crashed yes, (never let them drive)…sending you lovely thoughts ‘n sipping a red hot cup of coffee, so kettles asteaming!!! xx
Merry Christmas, my friend! All the best to you and your loved ones in year 2014.
