Over Burdened : A man with two gas filled cylinders is walking up hill.This is a common way of transportation for hill people in Darjeeling.Apart from this sight of carrying heavy items on one's back,people are more used to keeping them selves busy with daily chores and to maintain there fitness and health.The laborers who carry such heavy loads on their back to earn a livelihood do confine themselves to carry cooking gas cylinders only,but at times can be seen carrying heavier loads of almirahs and other home furniture.

Excellent street snapshot, well arranged in vertical format. I'm wondering that the man can carry this very heavy cargo. Even empty gas cylinder of this size is very heavy, not talking about two filled cylinders.

Every time I see a picture of you, are new surprises, this are bombs middle of the street.
Makes your picture maybe something smaller in future, we get to much grain on the picture.
A nice composition, perfect captured.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A street scene you had meant to collect, but instead you have shown the two yoiungsters with an inquisitive tough look on their faces expression.
The Cashmere shawls sign indicate what a tourist might look for in this place.
Interesting with the man carring the gas-tanks, not an easy life carrer.
Have a nice weekend,

Si ces deux réservoir de gaz propane sont pleines, je deviens plein de respect envers la force physique de cet homme. Par contre, je pense que le focus ne s'est pas fait au bon endroit dans l'image.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the laborers carry heavy load on their back and are walking up hill. It looks like very hard work, although it's a way to earn a livelihood. And, it's interesting in the contrat with people walking to maintain there fitness and health.

Wow, that is a heavy load. I can only imagine it must be to face steep hills with this weight, and its a real credit to the people who do this everyday. Very interesting capture of this moment.
All the best

a nice daily life scene is here. It is really tough job to carry two cylinders of lpg in such hard inclined hilly roads. You composed this frame really well with fine depth and clarity. A nice one. Tfs.

Oh, this makes my back hurt just looking at it, even from the comfort of a chair!? Such hard and tiresome work I'm sure, and you've done well to portray these efforts under the daily life structure. I like how this has been divided into three distinct people, the man in the middle and one on each side coming the opposite direction. An emphatic display and deserved admiration for such heavy weights and dedication. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take good care.

A very vital picture of life in the city, with all these people on the street, the image of the man, carrying two gas cylinders on their backs, seems awesome and terrible, they only carry one as it is a considerable weight, but two .... really impressive.
Perfect management of both luminosity and excellent sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.

Excellent shot of a street scene, I don't know how much it weighs, but I think it must be heavy, very well spotted and composed
Subhogen (4067) 2014-03-09 21:49
I cannot see his face, but I definitely can feel the hard work he has to put in ferrying 2 cylinders up the steep road. Good DL and street photo from Darjeeling. Thanks for sharing.

I am always enamored by these hill people. So fast, so nimble and not afraid of heights or weights.
You have captured the emotion of the faceless person beautifully.
eldancer1 (32051) 2014-03-10 7:29
Even if those gas cylinders are filled I don't think they weigh much more than empty. Very nice documentation of the struggle of poor people, so sad. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
danos (90333) 2014-03-11 7:54
difficult the life of the man who tranfer all this weight on his back.I like the timinng of the shot as the red colour of the gas bottle contrast perfect with the blue and the deep jacketes blue of the two men that pass by him.

Must nbe a heavy hard life to carry this gas cilinders
Noticing that kind of scenes in India I asked why not use some kind of pushcart and was told that way give more work at most people
Good capture with the carrying man framed by two men coming in the other sense
Interesting and well done
ChrisJ (104245) 2014-03-12 15:31
Although I am missing just a little bit of sharpness, the timing could not have been better in this superb decisive moment shot. The man carrying the gas cylinders is perfectly positioned between 2 other passers by in opposing attire of red and blue. Good graphism too. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (16647) 2014-03-12 16:42
Indeed, he is! Well seen and rendered. Good reportage.
Cricri (111403) 2014-03-13 7:27
Dur travail pour cet homme des montagnes, le poids lui fait courber le dos...intéressante image, note et présentation

Hi Farhat,an interesting street scene with the man who carry the gas cylinder,
very well captured!
Miguel82 (26541) 2014-03-20 11:49
In that street with textiles stores that guy is producing a big effort to carry gas demijohns in the mountains Darjeeling Fabbs, not easy, you were prompt to capture that view, all the best, greetings
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-03-25 23:14
Amazing what the human body can be turned into, so to speak, here we have a man transporting not one but two gas cylinders to his customer or his own home.
Splendid capture of this scene, Tfs,
