The young groom doesn't look very happy.  Even though we can't see the bride's face, this is not a happy union.

The shot of the tattoo artist is misleading.  It looks like he is cutting the man with a blade that he is tapping with the other instrument in his hand.  Maybe after the scarring heals he will have a 3-dimensional tattoo?

I think the child is running to the photographer for help not the other person in the photo.  Even children can have survival instincts.  It is commendable of the man in the photo to outstretch his hand to help the little girl.  This is photojournalism at its best - telling a story from behind the scenes of a horrific event.

The photographer is there to click this unique situation-it should be love for photography or children-or both.

This picture really shows even though society has advanced in the years that some customs and traditions never change.
