This bridal saree is nice, but not distinctive enough and might not have made it to the pages of this blog.
But what attracted me to this saree was the attempt at a distinctive saree photo shoot.
A little boy wearing adult sized ethnic clothes (it actually looks kind of odd, may be it was photoshopped); and the background of a wall with peeling paint and patches of concrete, and the antique simple door with large rivets, all add up to an interesting calling to a specific background.
I think, the idea was to put a highly ornate and expensive saree ($1600, if you must know the price), in this background so it stands out.
To me, it just seems that it is a picture that had a great potential, and not all of it was exploited here.
