Another daily scene captured in an old quarter of Ahmedabad. It was also taken early in the morning, in an old alley. Our presence got the attention of this couple, who approached the windows to watch us.
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.

Nice daily life shot, with a lot of details and warm colors.
This is just me, but I wonder what would happen if you cropped the photo and left only the right window. Of course this would require a vertical framing and be a totally different image...

J'aime beaucoup cette scène de la vie quotidienne , très naturelle et sans fioritures. C'est la vie de tous les jours dans son essence avec de très jolies couleurs.

Hello Ana - What a wonderful slice of DL. I like the details very much; the woman leans out of the window watching the goings on in the street below, her husband is less visible and I really like the way I discovered him lurking within the shade! Warm regards Rosemary

A very gentle observation, wonderful capture full of character and old charm with the woman adds so much extra value really pulling the eyes in. Simple street shot that works and renders that special feel and atmosphere. Great work, Congrats

why is the drying laundry so picturesque? The visit in the old city far away from all the turists must be great experience. Nice that there are people in the window, observing what is going on the street. Very pleasant daily life scene. Warm regrads

Many of your recent pictures show so much of the daily life of the locals that I enjoy, but this one stands out to me. There's just something about hanging laundry and residents looking out of windows that elevates that attraction...that "every day life" side of things. Wonderful framing that encapsulates these elements to a great degree, all done with detail and character. A lot of color and strong texture throughout. Very nicely spotted and smartly arranged. Thanks for sharing the perspective. Have a great week.
