Images of the day – the potters yard

This adorable group of Bishnoi children in the Thar desert outside of Jodphur were being co-opted into a photo shoot by a very insistent group of snap happy Japanese tourists.

The youngest boy was not amused, especially when made to hold a goat . . .

The potter still throws his pots in the traditional manner, propelling the wheel by hand with a large wooden stake used to speed it up.
