Girl With Water Pitcher

Bringing clean water in pitchers was a part of our tradition some time ago, when there were lack of water wells. Bringing water was the duty of women. For this purpose they had to go to common well of the village or near by river. The best times were early in the morning and after noon. Generally a woman had to carry two to four pitchers, one in her hand and the remaining on head. In the southern areas of NWFP, particularly in district karak, still women had to bring water in clay made pitchers. During in my university life in Gomal University D.I.Khan, while travailing from Peshawar to D.I. Khan, the women walking by road side in a row, with water pitchers, always attract my attention.

One problem I saw with the photoshopped picture is that there was no shadow for the girl as there was in the original picture, so your photo-shopped pic has do depth to it.
