Roadside Juice : This is an image displaying the sale of sugarcane juice by roadside in Calcutta.This is a typical juice extracting device exclusively used in Eastern India to extract juice from sugarcane for sale by the roadside.Normally sugarcane juice is never available in any shop Juice shop in Calcutta,but only available at these roadside joints.Although very unhygienic to consume such juice, which is beneficial for liver functions,but then there is a big demand for sugarcane juice in summer months.One big glass of sugarcane juice normally costs 10 rupees.

A good and interesting street shot. The green machine really brightens the foreground and the umbrella adds more colours. The most interesting detail may be the man sitting on the narrow roof across the street. The juice may be unhygenic, but that man's position seems more dangerous.

A very beautiful and colourful daily life-picture and a good street shot full of life.
I think the sugarcane juice is something typical Indian.
Funny but between the overhanging branches we catch a glimpse of a man sitting on a roof. Perhaps he found the street too busy :)
Best regards, Paul

A colourful street capture. All seem to be taking an interest in the photographer as he goes about his work, including the man on the roof seen through the trees.

a very interesting scene, full of information on the sugar cane juice stall, the transaction with the customers, the urban setting, the daily life in a busy street of Calcutta. Your picture has excellent depth and clarity, great light management has made the whole of the view comprehensive and the colours have kept their naturalness intact. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

I have not seen one of these contraptions since I was in South China. Good sharpness and superb color saturation and effective tight framing. Nice reflections in the wet street. Have a nice Sunday!

Bright and colorful street scene with several points of interest.
People like the street food, although it is unhygienic.

I have never heard of sugar cane juice, it sounds like a sweet treat, and a shame that you cannot get it in shops to know where it has come from. Another great candid scene in your series, and the expressions on the men is great, especially as you have caught them in mid transaction!
Thanks as always

Superb street scene of the juice sellers on the street in Calcutta . Amazing array of colours in the shot and great clarity to admire the many details, from the bricks propped in below the legs of the machine to the man perched precariously on the old corrugated roof in the background. Love it.
UlfE (14148) 2013-11-05 11:05
What a great roadside scene. I love the The bright green juicer that dominates the scene and the the sugar canes on the right hand side. The mechanical juicer must be really heavy and not easy took move. TFS and have a nice day!
jemaflor (74370) 2013-11-05 11:50
A stree scen well taken, good angle and light, interesting view about this sugarcane juice as in Antilles islands for example.
nikkitta (9205) 2013-11-05 12:48
Also in Paraguay I enjoy drinking shugar cane juice, refreshing one
I like you street capture with the not very happy way they are looking at you
On the right a customer is waiting to pay , it seems
Interesting note, congrats
Last but still... Happy Diwali!

Now I want some roadside juice.
I would love to see how much I would be charged as a tourist, I bet they'd charge me more than 10 rupees :)
So i think this juice is very sweet?
love these daily life scenes in India as I find the bg subjects and scenes interesting too.
danos (78348) 2013-11-06 10:23
nice the daily snapshot of these men with the roadside juice to be very common and welcoming between the customers.I like the brilliant light as the vivid colours of the scene.
ikeharel (44349) 2013-11-06 19:35
Good morning Farhat,

Fine clear details, vivid colors,and nice the faces expression collected.

You're capturing well this roadside shop by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the roadside stand which is selling sugarcane juice. It's covienient to make the juice because the raw material of sugarcane is put on the machine side. It is the street being a life breath.
mjw364 (6142) 2013-11-07 11:50
Another great scene from daily life in India. Very colourful and vibrant. I like it!
EstudioChispa (1742) 2013-11-07 12:02
What a great look at a classic scene. The peculiarities of sugar cane juice are new to me (unhygienic? from some property of the juice, or from the vendors' lack of fastidiousness?), but the phenomenon of street vendors selling juice is quite familiar to me from my times traveling Mexico.
I love the balance of the colors here -- the green stand in the middle, flanked by the blue t-shirt and the multi-color umbrella. Well done!
williewhistler (9993) 2013-11-07 12:18
this is a lovely street scene with each character playing a part from the customers with their money to the seller and his juice extractor,gorgeous colours and very good clarity.
Best regards Les.

Lep pogled na masinu koja cedi sok iz secerne trske.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar rad lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Nice view of the machine that squeezes the juice from sugar cane.
A good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Nice work, nice place and time indicated.
Have a great day, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

A stunning composition with this beautiful picture of daily life, the scene with the seller and the machine used for the preparation of sugar canes is fantastic.
Ideals these shades of color.
Very well done. I love it.
Very good brightness and sharpness is excellent.
Enjoy a great weekend.

Namaskar dear Farhat
I love these type of photos and this type of subject, especially when it involves food and drink. Good colour and vertical frame. I would probably have straightened the image so that the pole on the right was out of view. If you use Photoshop, I can talk you through how to do that. All in all, a very successful shot, thanks for sharing.
mirosu (8434) 2013-11-09 20:19
Excellent street snapshot. You have captured these sugar cane juice seller and his customers from excellent low angle POV. Superb photo from typical scene in India. Well done my friend.

Like this interesting street life scene a lot! It has been taken very well with an excellent level of details. All is superb sharp and well visible even the elements of the background. Well done! TFS!
Royaldevon (21665) 2013-11-15 11:06
I just love the busy, daily life scene that you have captured here. I have not been to India but in Pakistan, the streets are just the same, teeming with people, colours and noise.
The press looks like a mangle, used to squash water from wet clothes, before spin driers were invented. I suppose that its action is exactly the same.
You have captured a multitude of interesting and engaging details with fine saturation and a good dof.
Have a good w/e,
adores (31005) 2013-11-15 14:42
A good daily scene! I've tasted this juice a few years ago. The green machine is really eye catching and there are so many details around to see. The man at the top of the roof is surely one of the best ones:)! A very good capture!
