There’s a small village, one of thousands I am sure, in the country of India.  This one is located just outside Ranthambore National Park, a Tiger Preserve in Central India. The village is nothing special.  It has no major temple. No claim to fame.  It’s a simple village.  Still, a walk through the village offers an opportunity to catch a brief glimpse of the life and the people of India.  Here is a short photo series of a small Moment In Time in this tiny Indian Village.

escaped goat (1 of 6)Moments prior to my taking the image above  (of course I didn’t have my camera ready) this young lady had opened the door to her home and the baby kid goat had escaped.  Hurriedly, she chased it down and finally captured it.

Popping the kid under her arm, she headed back toward her home. That’s when she noticed my photographic interest.

Smiling, and looking a bit sheepish (if that’s possible while carrying a goat) she trudged on.
