Martial Arts Practice, India
Photo: Nicolas Chorier
Kalaripayatu fighters practicing on a beach in North Kerala. Kalaripayatu is one of the most ancient martial arts, supposedly more ancient than Kung Fu.

I was using a kite to lift the camera, in order to remain steady above the subject for more than an hour, without disturbing.
