A man talking to a friend in the old Porbandar, very early in the morning, when the stores were still closed.
It's another daily scene captured in the old quarter of Porbandar, near the house where Mahatma Gandhi was born. Porbandar is an old town on the coast, famous for being his birth place. The house where he was born is one of the most visited places in town and it's situated in the old city. However, Porbandar doesn't have many tourists around and infrastructures to receive them are still rare. But the old city is really interesting - it's really worth to go around and watch the old architecture and the daily life of the locals.

J'aime bien voir ce chien caché sous l'escalier. Il semble avoir la trouille. J'aime aussi le mouvement du bras de l'homme qui parle.

Hard to observe but the main protagonist of this shot should be the sly dog religiously listening to the conversation from behind ladder.In the birth land of Mahatma Gandhi you were only expected to capture the pulse of mystic India.Very well done. Great work from behind the lens.TFS.Keep sharing.

Very nice capture of this man and the dog (hiding from your camera). I like the lighting and it has good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

A really great shot and note, but as mentioned above, the star for me is the dog. He looks so mischeivious there, watching out as the subject does his thing, and that really puts a second life into the shot. Really cool, this made me smile :)
All the best

This is good technique, grab him in action to make the picture speaks, even the dog begs to be in included in the shot unnoticed of your lens. I love juxtaposition, the most effective element to hold the focus on but with lovely glimpse of everything within the frame to liven this shot. A delightful street candid image well presented. Great capture. Congrats

a charming every day live scene from small town India. I just wonder what that dog is afraid of, hiding like this under the stairs?
Interesting note on the city of Porbander as well, it is always worth to go of the beaten path to discover new and interesting places.
have a good sunday

Una bonita escena de la vida cotidiana en India, el hombre se ve que charlaba animadamente con movimiento de mano incluido, me encanta la imagen del perro como escondido y temeroso de algo.
Magníficas texturas y nitidez, con una deliciosa gama de colores.
Pasa una buena tarde, aqui lluviosa y fresca.

acho incrível como vc encontra estas cenas naturais, com personagens bem colocados e tudo muito bem iluminado, e ainda a coragem de tirar uma foto. se fosse no marrocos, ao ver a câmera, o homem já iria te olhar de cara amarrada. muito boa a foto, o grafismo dos elementos urbanos, o cachorro com medo e o homem alegre e falante fazem uma linda compo. parabéns.
