This was at Gateway of India on a Sunday with holiday crowd thronging the place while small hawkers doing brisk business. The man kept blowing bubbles irrespective of who came his way.
Could the bubbles be symbol of his wishes - floating high and then bursting into oblivion? The bubbles however did advertise his ware well and he could get many buyers.
Taken with an ancient Nikon manual lens - 135 2.8. The f stop though reads 32 was actually set on 2.8.
Very sharp despite its not being as clean.

a superb daily life scene. Great balance. Like the narrow depth which really emphasing the man. Nice dramatic atmosphere. Well seen and well composed. Very well done. Tfs.

Hi Mukesh. A really nice capture this one. I like the rather disjointed relationship between the man and the crowd. If I am going to be supercritical, it would have been perfect without the heads of the the two kids in the foreground, but hey I know how difficult it is. Best regards, Chris
