While pottering around in Korgaon, Goa I descried the village barber Apa Korgaonkar in action. Armed with my wide angle 14 mm lens, I decided to go head-to-head with Apa’s weapons.
For 15 minutes I watched the proceedings, with my lens barely 8″ or so away.

Very nice use of a wide-angle!

Are traditional barbers in Goa medicine-men as well?
paisa vasool !
