Aimless I walk in those forgotten alleys
Cluless I wait on the deserted roofs
There are sounds but no life
There is smoke but no fire
In the mercury bursting temperature
There is thirst but no quench
Clothes on ropes as dead leaves
Black birds bald and hoarse on minarets
Photograph taken in old Delhi.

I like the composition, the half seen seen man adds some mystery to the photo. And the view of old Delhi from the window completes the composition nicely.
Have a nice Sunday

These forgotten places often are the most rewarding explore and capture. I like the dark, harsh contrasts in this finish, and the sense of a story, a mystery contained in the old areas.

Hi Namaste dear Tushar
Hi how are you? So long now news from you!
Greatly impresive image of B&W with best momet and cropping image. So well considered framwork with best balance by your own originality as usual.
Thanks for your sharing and have a good day!

Compositionally this is a stunner. Of course it breaks some "rules", but does so deliberately and with a purpose. The headless man becomes an enigma rather than a person, and his darkness is a nice contrast to the lit scene out of the window opposite. I like the choice of monochrome as well.
