We left Bhavnagar very early in the morning and followed the road to Diu. When we first stopped, not very far from Bhavnagar I met this man - a shoeshiner having some rest while waiting for some customers and using the umbrella to get some shade, as it was a little hot on that day.

Another super shot of working life on the streets of India. I like the way that the tools of his trade are carefully laid out in front of him. The vertical post and the umbrella help to frame him. A beautifully taken shot - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

A delightfully candid shot of the real India.
I love how you have given us such a close-up, revealing every detail of the tools of his trade and, by the use of the umbrella, told the something of the temperature!
This really had me thinking; I would imagine most people wearing sandals in this climate. Is there really a big trade for a shoe-shiner?
Have a lovely day,

Hi Hola dear Ana
Great portait from nice side appraoch. His nice and gentle wink is very good action, you get perfect moment in very good moment. Perfect tight framework is so admirable.
Thanks a lot and have a good day! Takero

Si il utilise les souliers devant lui pour démontrer la qualité de son travail, je ne crois pas qu'il va avoir trop de clients dans la journée. Sa position ne doit pas être très confortable avec toute cette pollution.

Another little insight into the local life, a shoeshine man in the waiting depicting the exact situation here and is very effective in illustrating these people and their daily working activities. The details are clear with good eye connection and all the 'things' clearly visible, a lovely capture with a treatment that gives just the right atmosphere. Great work, Congrats
