Mangoes for sale in Vizag. Summer temperatures have dropped - for the time being at least - and this rather busy street in one of the older parts of the city is suddenly alive with colour, flavour and taste. Mangoes (and of course other fruits and vegetables) are sold at the many departmental stores under more 'hygenic' conditions, air conditioning etc., but it's displays like this that really announce it's arrival.
As i aimed my camera, the seller on the right mimicked me and called out to his friend at the other end. I couldn't follow his words but both of them seemed pleased.

A great street send, bursting with life and color and wonderful fruit! Mangoes are not common to find in stores here in Ireland, so I would have had to stop and try one.
I love that captured the man mimicking you on the right too, combined with your note, this brings a nice touch of humour to your scene.

A typical Indian market street but with an unusually empting display of goods. The mangoes look lovely and on this diagonal that you have arranged they also make the photo look lovely. The salesman's gesture is quite amusing.

Hello Satya - I love mangoes... best eaten in the bath as they are so messy! Here the fruit is temptingly presented in a good diagonal composition. I'd find it hard to pass this scene by without buying a few!

An excellent capture of this market scene; the slightly quirky point of view works very well here. I like the light and vivid colours. The mimic adds a touch of humour to the whole composition, which is very successful.

C'est ma conjointe qui salive en regardant cette photo, car, elle adore les mangues. Ici, il y en a un bel assortissement qui se prolonge en diagonale dans l'image pour le plus beau des effet.

Here (in Serbia) we can buy only a green mango, I believe that we do not know the real flavor of ripe mango! And it looks delicious!
Apurba20 (984) 2014-06-25 2:35
Can relate to the mimicry. People do not always like photographers. :)
Nice angle to the shot. Hope the mangoes are sweet and tasty.
Have a great day!
ourania (43594) 2014-06-25 2:39
what a delicious fruit mango is, what a delight to see so many mangoes brightening up this market street. I like very much the diagonal perspective and the marvelous golden/yellow tones that dominate the scene. There's superb sharpness and, besides the fruit, the scene is full of interesting details that give us information about daily life in this town. The clarity and vivid colours you've achieved are even more impressive if we consider the dull lighting conditions. The people add vigour and intrigue. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Yummy looks like Alphonso mangoes - correct me if I am wrong and without exaggeration and it's a true fact that Indian mangoes - the king of fruits are amongst the best in the world. They are quite expensive in Singpaore and this seasonal fruit normally arrives once a year around October and considered as a rare delicacy with its special flavour and sweetness. Gorgeous indeed, makes me feel like reaching out and picking one, their fragrance invites you! Delicious looking indeed, well captured, you have great lighting, atmosphere and animation too. It is top notch journalistic photography, which quite often goes unnoticed. Thank you for showing such a pleasant capture. Congrats

A fine angle of view to show off these delightful yellow rows of mangoes together with their vendors. I like the perspective of the seemingly never ending rows taking us through the image, and the other details of the street scenery which add to this nice daily life documentary.
nikkitta (17066) 2014-06-27 8:44
I love markets and also colorful stall at the street, true daily life capture bursting with live

Ciao Satya, lovely market scene full of life, fantastic colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (111632) 2014-07-01 14:11
The 2 parallel rows of mangoes atop straw and baskets add superb dynamism to this shot. I like the colourful packing crates and their warm cold colour contrasts. The bg market scene enlivens the composition. Good sharpness & saturation. Tfs!
Miguel82 (27670) 2014-07-01 19:22
Good perspective, so it's mango season in June in Andhra, fine yellow hues, it contains many vitamins but the filaments are sometimes not easy to remove from the teeths, regards
jemaflor (95355) 2014-07-03 23:55
Well taken, good depth effect with these lines on this market, perfect brightness and colors.
imageme (1790) 2014-07-06 9:24
Hi Satya, Nice market scenery that the mangoes are the focus element in the frame. Your angle gives a nice sense of depth to the frame and the clothes and the people in the BG are interesting point too. Beautiful light and tones with great colours. Best regards

This is a very good daily scene! So many mangoes, so many things... I miss the Indian markets already.
Very well captured, I like a lot the pose of the man on the right!
Didi (60586) 2014-07-17 8:28
Very nice yellow perspective
Mango is my favorite fruit but expensive in France
ikeharel (69213) 2014-07-19 3:00
Yellow color of the mangos in two rows and displayed for sale, most effective in contrast and there is good DOF on image.
A street market, the vivid and colorful ambiance well collected.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
wolf38 (31296) 2014-07-20 22:41
Hi Satya. This photo from the exotic market like that even as a small thumbnail. Due colorful fruits are truly a feast for the eyes. Very nice.
PaulVDV (27854) 2014-08-17 2:09
A colourful daily life - and market scene.
From my journeys to India long time ago I remember that mangoes can be found on every market.
But here some very long lines have been displayed.
Best regards, Paul
