I love the retro forties glamour in the way that this picture is posed and processed. The lady on the staircase is Scarlet Roman, a Mexican student currently studying in China. There she met her Sri Lankan boyfriend and this picture, and the two below the fold (click on the pictures to go to their respective Flickr pages), were taken on a trip to Sri Lanka with him. While there she admits to becoming a real sari fan, as these pictures demonstrate. So hopefully we may see some more of her saree pictures in Women in Sarees.
My thanks to Scarlet for letting me post her pictures here.
