A man selling Chai in the old market of Rajkot.
Rajkot is one of the biggest and also one of the fastest growing cities in Gujarat. Founded in the 17th century, it has played an important role in the Indian Independence Movement.
Like in most part of the state, western tourists are not so common here. It's also difficult to find souvenirs here, as practically everything they have to sell is for locals, something that makes these places so special to me.

This scene is so far removed from anything that I would see in my region of the U.S. that I'm fascinated with everything I'm viewing! :) I love the daily life aspect of an image like this, there's so much character with human presence and interaction. You've included so many wonderful elements and details in this composition, it's a feast for the eyes to absorb everything as it's displayed. A smile from the shop owner has given this a personal touch, a wonderful moment captured! Thanks for sharing this cultural insight. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,

A lovely scene with lots of charm, like only India can produce. The everyday scene with the tea drinking chap and the holy cow so stoicly behind them has really lots of character.
have a great day

Hi dear Ana,
What a great daily life image of these happy street vendors - your POV - the colours - clarity & the overall content are all excellent.
Please forgive the long delay in responding to your last critic... my husband & I have just returned home from a long 9 week trip.
I hope my brief message finds you well & in good spirits?

Interesting view for you..a roadside tea stall serving nice sweet milk tea. Maximum of the picture was in shade, but you handled well..nice daily life image!

I like very much this spontaneous capture and the people's intrigued and friendly attitude towards your lens, especially the gentleman's holding the kettle. I also like how rich this simple composition is in daily life details and how sharply and clearly you've captured them. The lighting is perfect and the colours are absolutely natural and very important for the narration. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
