Namaste Dwaipayan. Revealing POV of this chaiwalla at work and judging by his well used saucepan,he has been in the trade for a long time.His improvised kitchen is interesting as well. Regards. Klaudio.

Ah, detail is great... including the matchsticks!
The pov covers the whole 'shop'/'kitchen'.
Beautiful colors achieved in this compact frame.
Very well taken.

a fascinating shot this. I love your POV and the real sense of industry here. It is a glimpse of something that is both traditional, and full of character, that is both compelling and superbly captured. Well done!
Have a great weekend - B.

This is a fairly iconic photo for me. I remember well from my early visits to India the pleasure of havng a cup of sweet chai served through the window of my train at dawn, after a long and uncomfortable all night journey. Along the tracks were hundreds of broken clay-cups thrown away by passengers. This photo may have been taken in a street, but the view from above makes it look like you were sitting in a train.

Hello Dwaipayan - A clever vantage point shows us the details of the chaiwalla's 'kitchen' from an angle which is unusual and all encompassing. Nice work! Warm regards Rosemary

Namaskar dear Dwaipayan
A fantastic shot, artistic POV which has created an original and attractive perspective. The colours are lovely and rich, as are the definition and skin tones. Sensational shot.
Have a wonderful day

This is a typical situation seen from hi angle looking downwards and I like the idea. The light was great, there's good detail - the pots in particular look good against the setting and graphically it is good and the contrast is nice too, from a pictorial view it works fine as there's enough content to maintain interest for very long and well counterbalanced of negative space. It's a happy shot documenting the brief moment showing what the local does in their daily life in just casual mood and a shot which is easy on the eye. I love mood, the exposure and colours too. A fine observational capture and well spotted chance. Great shot, Congrats, TFS

you made the description of this daily life scene absolutely fascinating by choosing to present it from this extraordinary point of view. Depth and sharpness are amazing, the layout, the dynamism of the movement and the harmonious colour range offer a graphic quality that I love. You used the light very effectively, the atmosphere is subdued and warm at the same time. The textural richness is so rewarding. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
