This is my second post of the old quarters of Ahmedabad.It was also taken early in the morning.
Far away from the crowds of tourists, a visit to the old quarters of this city can be a fantastic and magical experience and a chance to talk to the locals and watch their daily life.
Founded in the 15th century by Sultan Ahmed Shah, Ahmedabad is a fast growing city and the largest one in the Gujarat state.

Lovely composition. The photo would have been even better had it not been for the power line in between. Perhaps it was unavoidable - nice photo, nonetheless!

Hello Ana,with the pigeon perched on the pipe the disdainful glance of the man holding his paper amongst a tired building you have captured the essence and atmosphere of the Old Quarters superbly.
The composition in the portrait format works very well with much interest throughout.
Really nice photography.
Best regards Les.

Cool picture of this everyday life scene, I love the very old and dirty wall, it gives a particular atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing!

Life goes on everywhere, no matter how hard or easy it is. Here, you have presented a very interesting scene with a great perpective. What I like most is the very relaxed expression on the face of the guy. He looks like happy with what he has. Great catch. Thanks for sharing. Have a good evening.

Cette vieille fenêtre et les murs sont extrèmement photogéniques et nous montrent leur grand âge. Le personnage ainsi que le pigeon sont bien placés dans la composition et apportent une belle présence.

I also like walking in the old quartier, far away of the places visited by most turists. Nice observation of the quiet life. The man stopped reading to see the strange photographer. he is relaxing but probably the women are working hard.

Hello Ana! This is of the old side of Ahmedabad. Gives some details of architectural elements and also of everyday life! It's a good idea of the composition in the portrait format of street

You're capturing well this daily life shot by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see an old archihtecture with aged wall and tasteful window opened wide outside.

Hello Ana. A beautiful patio with a good view, a newspaper. What more could you want. The old house wall and the dove are a nice addition. Well seen and realized. Rgds, Wolfgang.

You got a decisive look from the man reading the paper...
The house is in notable decay, yet you made a good achievment showing all details in clear texture.

what a great scene!
If i ever make it to India, i would want to see opportunities like this one.
just look at the charm of the window shutters and the opening as a whole...great capture of daily life in far away places.

Caught by suprise! It's an excellent, an eye catching compo, so well detailed superbly and ideally situated in the frame even the bird is not left out. Beautiful and bags of interest though looks a bit rundown but the fine textures is mesmerising that absolutely conveys the rustic atmosphere of the old quarter full of character and charm. Great capture of daily life here, and an excellent image. Congrats
