Goa along with Daman and Diu are the smaller states of India, and those who were colonized by the Portuguese. Unlike the British, the Portuguese are ethnically mixed, as you can see from the photo. The state of Goa, is 50% Christian, the Portuguese came to Goa as merchants at the beginning of the sixteenth century and conquered in a short time. Later the region was part of the colonial Portuguese for about 450 years, thus becoming one of the oldest and most enduring colonial domains of history, until it was occupied by India in 1961.

Its a typical Indian Street selling shot. In India you will often see such kind of flower seller.
Coming to this image, this has got a documentary value and has a story also. Nice catch with moving crowds.

Like this market scence and the flower garlands, Goan style. The natural smiles on their face captured well. A combination of colours, bright and sharp.

Scena tipica del mercato di Mapusa, con le Goane (mi sembrano Cristiane queste)vendendo fiori.
Immagine colorata e luminosa!

Colorful street vendors plying the trade around this town. Superb candid shot, a lovely little insight into the local life. A fabulous image which really brings this place to life. This image shows the exact situation here and is very effective in illustrating these people and their daily working activities. The cheery colors are really attractive and make a lot of different, a lovely capture with a treatment that gives just the right atmosphere. Great work, Congrats
