Oh! dear, I have lost my childhood.
That is what the girl probably seems to think as she clutches the wooden stick holding many toy windmills of various colors, while she has kept the other hand on her head. The latter is often seen as a body sign of desperation and despondence.
Fortunately, however, the girl hasn't yet let dejection light up her eyes. There is quite optimism left. There are still hopes that she will sell off all the toy windmills by the time Marine Drive in Mumbai gets the desolated look reserved for the very late nights.

Good street capture full of life and colour. The main protagonist with her colourful toys for sale makes an excellent focal point. Hopefully she will have sold all her wares by the end of play.

The girl makes an excellent focal figure, with her concerned expression, contrasting so sharply with the colourful array of toy windmills.
You have achieved a very natural diagonal movement from her, to the tree, which is mimicking the windmills.
Have a great day,

You were on a right time at a right place to capture the girl's emotions.
Rightly said that many children in India lost their childhood at a early stage to support their family.
thanks for sharing.

Interesantan tekst o devojci koja prodaje male vetrenjace ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepo secanje na detinjstvo.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

The girl with the colourful paper toys makes a very attractive focal point and you pressed the shutter at the right moment to capture her expression. Beautiful spontaneous street photograph.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

good choice to put the girl selling the colorful paper fans in the main place in the frame as she provided very eye catching element. Nicely composed street scene with natural colors and good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
