That type of work can be made by a machine Fabbs, I think it contributes to give a job to many people, good view of Calcutta street, two ambassadors yellow taxis on the left, yes Suzuki are very popular and I've observed that many people select the model Swift, all the best Fabbs, see you

Excellent snapshot, superb arrangement with the man in foreground and the yellow taxis in background. I feel pity for people like him. I was very often confronted with scenes like this and have still big problem to accept it, so little money for hard work. I believe that there is not big change during last 30 years, period when I regularly visited your country.
But the photo is perfect. As I said longer time ago, your photo skill improved in excellent way. Bravo!!!

a nice capture from the busy road of I guess north Calcutta. The depth of the picture is nice and nice natural colours. I like the labour on the road as a part of this street life. Good one. Tfs.

You're capturing well this daily life by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a Day Labourer who is shouldering the heavy carpet in the street. It looks like a hard work. And, it's also impressive in yellow taxi and shopping mall of both side.

A fine daily life capture featuring this day labourer with his heavy load. Apart from him, there are lot of other interesting things to see in this well presented image. Putting the main subject in the middle of the frame does bot always make for a strong composition but here it does when combined with the rest of the scene.

Je ne suis pas certain que j'aimerais porter cette charge dans cette rue très animée. Une belle photo type reportage qui donne une très bonne idée de l'activité journalière dans ces villes.

A very good daily-life street scene with the labourer. Beautiful details and colors. I like your lucid description also. Wonderful shot with a nice light management.

Good evening Farhat,
Fine taken the street scene with the guy crossing the line of your aiming shot, dressed in traditional cloths.
Yellow cabs in motion, and good depth along, with fine clarity collected well.

A nice photo indeed, and one that reminds us how fortunate we may actually be. A telling image that conveys the human spirit and dedication to work so hard for so little. Another interesting look into the daily life aspect of the city and its people. On the technical side, it's very well balanced in exposure and composition with sharp detail and deep focus. Thanks for sharing this passing moment. Have a great day ahead. Take care.

Yes, and he is about to be run over by Hindustan taxis. Excellent photo of daily life from Calcutta.

J'imagine le poids lourd sur sa tête, une scène et portrait super bien présenter, j'aime les couleurs de ces vêtements, l'ambiance de la rue ou il marche a l'aise
eldancer1 (23162) 2014-01-30 9:59
Very nice capture of this working man in the middle of the street oblivious to its surroundings but I know those drivers are paying attention. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
Oceania (4082) 2014-01-30 11:18
Why do not us a vehicle to carry such large piece of parcel? People sure work hard everywhere in the world. But some make more money, some are not.
Silvio1953 (111238) 2014-01-30 12:38
Ciao Farhat, hard work for this man, lovely daily life composition, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
pierrefonds (53358) 2014-01-31 4:29
The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. You have captured well tghe action of the man carrying a package. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.
annjackman (16861) 2014-01-31 8:06
I like your useful note that accompanies this excellent photo. It was good to have got the shiny yellow taxis behind the man with the yellow shirt. Very good colours and sharpness - an enjoyable image that tells something about the city.
Kind Regards, Ann

nice take on daily life, it's pretty hard these days. The colorful clothes make the mood a bit brighter.
RhodieIke (11084) 2014-01-31 23:00
Very interesting daily life shot of this scene and in particular this man on his job delivering this carpet to it's owners. Great colours, light and chosen Pov, Tfs, you have a nice weekend.
macjake (49384) 2014-02-02 5:10
I always find your inner city photos from India very interesting...this one too.
love to scan the scene, see whats happening in the bg, and examining all the cars :)
a real cultural type of scene, lots to keep me interested.
josepmarin (57277) 2014-02-02 23:52
your good photo shows us a daily life scene in the city, with the hard work of this man carrying a heavy article on his head, while he walks in the middle of the street. The yellow taxis and the people provide a good dynamic effect in the image.
Well seen, and well done.
nikkitta (11212) 2014-02-03 14:18
Quite agree with Miguel Fabbs, I believed pushcart where forbidden till someone told me it s a way to give or obtain work
Good capture matching yellow colors,taxis and t shirt
ourania (22868) 2014-02-06 12:24
a very interesting presentation of this job, a simple and effective composition that shows us the day labourer at a moment of his daily routine. Your picture has superb depth and clarity and the richness and movement in the context enhances our comprehension of this daily life scene with the labourer walking alone with his load through the city. You illuminated the scene very aptly and the colours are natural and consistent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Very interesting and realistic picture of everyday life in the city with his ritimo life, draws attention the man charged with the package and walking down the middle of the street with cars, good perspective and details.
A beautiful job very well done.
With good lighting and sharpness.
