Early customers at a roadside grocer’s at Ananthagiri village in Araku (Andhra Pradesh, India).
Well stocked with provisions intended to satisfy many customers, it boasted of its very own brand of honey claimed to have been gathered from the valley.
The local, after having his morning coffee (off the vending machine), asked me (through interpreters) to take his photo.

he asked you take his photo? How wonderful, normally I would be hesitant in asking permission to shoot somebody so very nice to hear it work the other way. This is a very fine and documentary street photo, I can see in years to come this would be an image that people will refer to in order to see how life once was. Your considered composition is great to as it takes in so much of the man's surrounding which I think is important to place him in context,

very interesting photo with plenty of colorful details to dwell on. The shop with its busy owner create some contrast for the man posing for the photo who looks little bit poor.
Good composition with grey and rough elements set up against colorful and shiny details.
Thanks for sharing

I am always surprised when people ask me to take their picture, even when they couldn't possibly expect to be given a copy. This man doesn't even look into your camera, and he doesn't smile. But still this was an opportunity not to be missed. He gave you a great foreground for this shot of the very colourful local shop where there are so many fine details to watch. This picture also tells us a lot about India of today, where mdern life and old traditions live side by side.

Une très belle scène de la vie quotidienne à cet endroit. On constate que Coke se retrouve partout au monde, même dans les endroits les plus éloignés.

Une image de la vie quotidienne prise sur le vif. L'ambiance générale est parfaitement reproduite à travers la composition.
Couleurs douces et agréables.
Très bonne journée.

Beaucoup de détails colorées a voir de cette échoppe ouverte sur la route, l'homme en avant plan semble pauvre, triste a coté du vendeur, belle présentation

An excellent composition, which shows a very real way a corner with the atmosphere of the streets in India, with the vitality it brings people and colorful shops and products displayed.
Great colorful natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.

Beside the local man posing for you, you managed to employ well all of pic. space, convey a good and vivid scene of rural countryside.
Pumpkins sided with a modern Coca-Cola machine and crates in red, and just above it a telephone switching box hang on a bamboo stick... how different and contrast items.
Nice taken photo, vibrant and interesting.

Coca-Cola can be found anywhere!
no matter how rich, how poor the local area is Coke is everywhere.
these shots are interesting because there are so many items to see in the bg. nice shot
