Coconut water is a delicious drink and very good for you. People in South India set up "shops" (or in this case piles of coconuts) and they will machete off the top and put a straw in for you to drink for just a few rupees. After you have finished the coconut water they cut it open and scoop out the soft meat, if there is any.

Nice image though it seems very much over-saturated giving the man a strange red colour. I had a little play and he looked much more healthy when saturation was decreased by about 15%
I like the compo though and there's a tamboli stall just outside my office which I'm going to visit after posting this!

welcome to TE
Good beginning to start on TE, and then your photographs correspond well to the philosophy of the site. Here you collected in all simplicity this man cutting these innumerable coconuts, and what a treat!

Hi Cathy, I rtecently went to India (Goa) and this is just so typical and evocative of that country. Lovely shot. Please keep snapping and posting. Paul.
