These two little boys were preparing and selling food in the market of a little village in the region of Chhota Udaipur, not far from Vadodara.
Once again, I found no western people around, except us, as this area is far from the tourist routes. No souvenirs or stuff for tourists, here the only things we can find are exactly the things the locals need and buy.

Buena imagen, captada sin poses.
Lo que comentas es interesante. En las zonas turísticas, de cualquier país, los extranjeros ven un montaje falso, creado para ellos, para hacerles creer que están conociendo lo típico y esencial del lugar. Yo he notado eso en Cuba, Peru, Argentina y en mi propio país. Yo pienso que lo autentico esta afuera de esas zonas.

It is always good to get away from the tourist areas and take pictures of normal life in India. You did well to get these two boys with their cooking equipment so clearly shown. Excellent detail of the various textures of the street and the 'kitchen'. Very well done and TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Its the way how many poor Indian make their livings.
They don't complain much and live with those what they have.
Good timely shot when the older one is taking those 'pakaude' out of the pan and there are already some in the basket to see what he was making.
The relaxed expression of the younger kid after finishing his part of work
Good composition, sharpness and dof to show all the details.

nicely composed and interesting daily-life shot.
I like the real,less touristic side of life you show us in this picture.Technically the image is superb with excellent sharpness,light and colors.
I´m also very curious if you tried a food from some of such street stalls?
Have a nice day

A great daily life capture, and the fact that the brush is in mid swish adds a great life to it. Nicely spotted, and perfect timing.

Love the simplicity of the shot and yummy! street people getting about their daily life and a true shot from the off beaten path revealing another pespective at a new beginning every day. Nice display of colors with all the props thrown in excellent clarity with nice hint of movements. This shot conveys the insight of local way of life subtly, Well done.

great documentary with the two boys at work. I am concerned about my daughter not having good chances with me as a poor immigrant father but watching these children forced to work at such your age I guess she will be still having OK chances...
It is a sad story showed here but very well captured, thanks for sharing,

Very nice documentation of the daily life of people. It's so sad that in the 21st century there are more poor people trying to survive. I like your pov and nice action shot with blurring of the fried food. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

You sure venture very far into many non-touristic places, that's why there is no western people but you. This is a really wonderful daily life iamge of the food vender. It look like they are deep fried fruite. This reminded me of when I was a child, eating food from the street like this one. Thanks.
