A very common daily scene, captured in the old centre of Bhavnagar, by the end of the afternoon. One of the biggest cities in Gujarat, Bhavnagar has a very genuine market. Western people are not so common here and people are incredibly nice.
This is an old barber shop I found there.

A very pleasant and interesting daily life street scene from far away. Nice colours and composition, a valuable TE contribution.

This is a very enjoyable photo with a good natural frame. It shows us an interesting interior and two nicely smiling gentlemen who seem quite amused at the idea of being on TE. The light management is very good and the colours are beautifully mild.

due bei ritratti ambientati in questo negozio fermo nel tempo.
Ottimi i colori e l'esposizione.
Simpatico il sorriso orgoglioso del proprietario.

a well composed photo in an effective vertical frame adjusted to the width of the barber shop. A very vivid presentation thanks to excellent clarity and rendering of details as well as to the gentlemen's eye contact. I love their natural and unpretentious glances, they seem to be sharing the same friendly and curious looks with you and the viewers of your picture. Lighting and management of colours are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A very wonderful daily scene. From your point of view, it looks almost like a set from a tv show, with how one entire wall is missing. The barber looks so proud of his work, and makes for a very interesting shot.
All the best

Cette scène me rappelle des moments de la vie quotidienne lorsque j'étais en Egypte où la coupe de cheveux me coûtait 0.15 €
Je te souhaite un bon réveillon de Noël
macjake (69143) 2012-12-25 19:14

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

This is quite a good 'salon' or 'saloon' as we call it...barber shop I mean. The gguys seem to be quite interested in them being photographed :-) I would have loved to see someone sitting on the chair to have a close cut or a shave
PS : Wish you the very best for 2013

This is a very interesting daily life scene. Barber shops like this are not very common in the West anymore. I had a shave in a barber shop like this in Vietnam for some years ago and it was a pleasure. Good portrait of two men in their environment, excellent light and colors,Tfs!
Have a nice evening.

muito boa a foto, parece uma pintura. a luz e o modo natural dos personagens está fabuloso. me impressiono sempre como eles permitem fotos e como parecem naturais nelas. belo trabalho.

A very well taken a presented picture of daily life on the streets, this has wonderful local appeal. It literally looks to be a hole in the wall converted into a barbershop, crazy!? I love that you were able to capture not only these two gentlemen, but the expressions on their faces, it gives so much emotion to the photo. Splendid light management has brought out the many fine details and textures of this rugged and humble shop. Nicely done, thanks for sharing this slice of life.
