Tumeric, paprika, ginger, cumin and coriander, all freshly ground. The aroma that surrounds the spice man, makes you want to linger a little longer, next door is the butcher, not so nice.

Turmeric, paprika, ginger, cumin and coriander, I just can smell all those spices here. They are the main ingredients to a good curry, that make my mouth water.
The man is so full of character and his absent minded pose lets him come across so naturally. Great portrait from this street seller.
have a good sunday

What a lovely portrait of the spice seller. The light is exquisite, and you have used it well. Indeed, you could even increase the contrast a little more and in the process diminish the distraction of the poster without eliminating it altogether. All in all, it is excellent.

Very good light on this man and a specific look (tired, sad ?)giving a strong mood. Beautiful portrait

This is a fine environmental portrait, the light and shades make the vendor and the vivid colors of the spices to hold the attention in a well balanced composition. His serious mix of characterful face is more than one sense of the word with lots of interest. This is an excellent syreet shot with lots of local flavour. Congrats
