These are the steps to Anjaneya temple
It was amazing that the girl climbed all the steps without making a noise.

Bonjour, cher lakshmi,
Très intéressante image présentée ici. Il faut du courage pour les fidèles pour gravir ce nombre impressionnant de marches afin d'accéder au Temple.
L'image est présentée très habilement, une prise de vue très naturelle.

I like sunshine that reflected the shirt that gentleman. Great effect!

An interesting and well presented daily life composition. The difficult lighting conditions are well managed and the image has good colours and sharpness. The guy concentrating on his mobile makes an amusing contrast with the little girl by his side.

A scene well captured. I like the mix of different colors and expressions. The little girl seems to imitate the man, probably her father, with his mobile as she has her hand to her ear, like they are phoning each other.
Have a nice day

C'est drôle de voir la petite fille tenter de faire le même mouvement de la main que son père. C'est attendrissant.

A fine daily life scene with people in many colours are walking up the stairs here. Most of them seem to be deep in own thoughts, only the cute little girl seems to notice the photographer.

I like this daily life shot.
Good frame and colors.

It seems a hard work to climb these stairs to accede to the temple.
In this framing you have caught a scene spontaneous and full of life, with a few vivid and saturated colors, which give a great power to the image. The little girl in foreground is adorable, and seems to be tired because of this climb.
The perspective is dynamic, in a good composition.

an usual scene but I liked the position of these personages and the graphism of the lines around. good light.

Hello Dear Lakshmi !
It must be hard work walking up to the temple. Everyone looks at their feet, and they seem to be thinking without thinking. I like the little girl in the foreground who seems to be very exhausted but she follows her father without a word. The scene like this reminds me of our lives. Life itself is like climbing a long set of stairs. The photo is a metaphor for our everyday life. We all are climbing a long staircase as we live through our everyday lives. The photo represents in reality what our life is really like. The scene is bathed in a beautifully warm light, a vision of hope and happiness. The photo tells a story without a word. The image speaks without stories.
With my very best and warmest regards,
Have a very lovely evening, Lakshmi
