Being the owner, the man in the front has to show some dignity and power. His employees were happy to have their picture, but the owner refused to smile. Luckily, he didn't mind my taking the shot.

Have a nice day

I have to say I find this image rather amusing with the man sat somewhat po-faced whilst the youngsters in the background can't stop themselves from laughing. Made all the more interesting by the splendid array of goods to be seen in the shop. Excellent work!

L'image convient parfaitement au titre. Cela semble beaucoup plus sérieux à l'avant plan qu'en arrière ou les jeunes semblent s'amuser ferme.

Lots on sale at this corner store! Good colour & a subtle contrast between the older worn out & suspicious store-owner apparently glancing in a security mirror, & the younger carefree teenagers in the background. I'm sure this man works very long hours so no reason for him to smile until the shop closes. Tfs!

This is almost a journalitic shot with so much on view in this shop. Quite a contrast to the shops here, in England. The elements are sharp and colourful.
It is interesting to speculate about the contrasting characters. The well-positioned owner appears very suspicious ... or is he just worried about having his photograph taken!!
My warm regards,

The shopkeeper is worrid for some reason, Lakshmi, that's why his face's expression is serious - but the youngsters probably had some more positive or rather optimistm to cheer.
Fine inside shop image - daily life show par-excellence.

a good capture of this daily scene, with an interesting vital contrast between the attitude of the owner of the shop, and the laughs of his employees, in background.
It is a photo full of life, which you have executed very well in spite of its difficulty.

Funny compo here with serious boss and laughing employees. Good light for an inside shot and a lot of details to look at. He has quite a modern scale and some other equipment!

Hello Dear Lakshmi,
The contrast created by the shop owner among his employees stands out, the others seem to be having a very nice time. The apparent stubbornness of the owner doesn't necessarily mean that he is really like this all the time. While the young can adjust more easily to the changing environment, the older and more established being has more to guard against the change which is occurring around him. I am sure that he wants to blend in with the others in his mind, but as you mentioned in your note, he has chosen to give priority to showing his dignity. And if the depicted moment really represents the relationship on a daily basis with the others, the young wouldn’t be showing their emotions so openly in the presence of the shop owner. I am convinced that this man in reality is a possessor of a kindness and is liked by the employees. This is another heart-warming capture. I wonder how I would react to the situation, giggling or not knowing what to do in presence of a camera. I am camera shy, I can identify myself with the shop owner. This is another nice capture of daily life.
With my very best and warmest regards,
Have a very nice week ahead, Lakshmi
