This is another daily scene captured in 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.

A iluminação está muito boa, e essa parede velha dá um ar bastante interessante à foto, e aí estão as sagradas vacas indianas! Esse é um país dos que mais quero conhecer, ainda vou ter fotos de lá aqui no TE um dia!

Na Índia as vacas são livres, mas eles parecem ser acorrentado. Eu amo esta imagem da vida diária, muito trabalhoso. A composição é inteligente. A qualidade é muito boa. Bravo.

I really like the splashes of colour that the women and clothing add to this otherwise neutral pallet. Nice details.

this is a great street scene. you have composed this very well to give us a glimpse of life here. your viewpoint looking along the wall is excellent which draws the viewers eye into the scene, while the woman's orange dress and the red clothes on the line provide a great focal point.

I have found Ahmedabad to be one of the most genuine Indian big cities, generally very far from the tourist crowds and fairly untouched by the trends of globalization, at least 20-30 years ago. Maybe this has all changed, but this picture capttures very well the old atmosphere I found in the city and learned to enjoy. It really shows Indian daily life in a nice composition with excellent colours.

a wonderfully executed shot and composition. Full of old world character and elements that make it so compelling and fascinating. A picture that tells a story and stirs the senses.
Enjoy the weekend - regards Brian.

Une scène de la vie quotidienne qui montre la différence entre nos modes de vie. J'imagine tout le travail qu'il faut faire pour aller chercher l'eau pour la lessive.

Hi dear Ana
Another wonderful image, presenting a typical daily life in India! I like this shot very much, as all components of India all in one shot, cow, lady in Sally and choas---. Great color touch and nice daylight management. Perfect framework and clear and sharp description as usual. Thanks for your sharing with finest work and have a good weekend!

You would agree that one of the advantges of shooting in India is the vibrant color and always the best and strong element just like in this eye catching photo, the mild morning light and the stinging reds produce very appealing result even in the rather muted backdrop, all the important figs are at right position and placing the stars of the ocassion at a right place- this is about excellent composition. I like very much how at each level, there is something of interest to trigger the eyes. Lovely moment, the daily life, seeing people in this away from the tourist trails is what it's all about the real India. An excellent piece of daily life photography, Congrats, TFS
Have a great day.

This is a fascinating daily life picture and could only be India. The colours of the clothes, the cows and the crumbling building all tell so much about life in this city. I like the way that the main interest is presented on a diagonal. Excellent clarity giving some fine detail.
Kind Regards, Ann

I have the feeling that the cows in picture, live well on the poverty around, Ana.
The two ladies a bit under shade, understandably, gave a vivid scale on.
That'a a real daily-life scene, I recon, never been to India, though.

Joli point de vue sur cette scène d'un autre monde.
Détails et couleurs sont magnifiques.

Good daily life image, it is like walking through the streets with you in the old quarters. and it is nice to get away from the touristic places and see how people live. This looks very much like where I grew up.

Truly Indian village scene.The cows and the ladies working.Fantastic sharpness and brightness. Great job, I love it. Have a nice week ahead.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and very fine tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle that people are living in daily life. It's impressive in the spectacle the wife who is washing, and in which the washing is hung out to dry to the clothespole. It's interesting in the structure of the wall, too. And, two calves with black and white at courtyard seem to be a spectacle in character with India.
