Thanks, Russ.

It's actually a 'gal' sitting there - one of the many widows living on the streets of Varanasi - and was never intended to be anything other.

Poor woman, what a destiny! With all those fortune tellers around, you'd think she'd have migrated before her parents flogged her off the books! Shows you, though, can't escape destiny. As I, too, discovered, what's for you won't go around you, and what's not you might as well forget. Trouble is, how do we know which is which, or is it as Saul Leiter said: nobody knows what's what, and when they do, it's too late?

Haunting

Indeed, Matt.

We were often humbled by the stoicism shown in the face of adversity.

How can we know it is a ‘gal’, Keith? You obviously didn’t spent enough time with woman to know they can be very illogical in how they dress, A headscarf certainly is not a proof of feminine.
I suggest you study the masters of feminism before you portray such a difficult genre.

But, personally, I like this portrait of that guy.  ;D

The image obviously passes the ambiguity test if Russ doesn’t know if it is a guy or a gal. It’s getting closer to street I think. Real street or actual street or proper street or Magnum street.

If ambiguity is the parameter, we ‘at Lula’ are all a bit street. Aren’t we?

Vuistregel:
"om" met 1 o, betekent "to" met 1 o.
"ook" met 2 oo's, betekent "too" met 2 oo's.

en "te veel o's" schrijf je ook met twee oo's: and "too many o's" too is written with two oo's.

En wees gerust, nee, ik ben geen taalpurist, maar dit verschil is soms moeilijk uit een zin te destilleren.
