~ My 800th | Tea For Everyone ~
Here is your glass of tea...
Captured it early morning at a roadside tea shop... These shops are probably the most busy 'meeting' place in India... Especially we Bengalee enjoy to discuss everything here... And the words 'meeting' & 'everything' literally means meeting & everything...
If you have a wish to experience it, go to any roadside tea shop in India, especially in Bengal...
~ Enjoy It ~

Cheers Subhendu - for the tea ... And congratulations for your 800th post...great achievement.
The roadside tea chops are iconic all over India, and especially in West Bengal. So much of our social exchange revolves around the Tea shop..... much akin to the pub in UK and other European countries. The wide age group of people in the photograph proves the point. The POV is interesting as you have positioned yourself behind the salesman.... Thanks for sharing this scene of Daily Life ...

Congratulations Subhendu on your 800th post. I would love to drink a cup of tea with you and who knows one day I may get to visit you in India! I guess your tea shops fulfill many of the social functions that a pubs do in the west.... with less of the associated problems too! I love this POV looking out towards the customers, an original and well constructed shot. Here's to the next 800.... cheers! Rosemary

Lovely image to enjoy this special occasion with other TE friends.

L'instant ou l'homme lève son bras pour faire son service est parfaitement saisi et nous permet de voir les clients se presser au comptoir sous une superbe lumière.

here it would be "champagne" but I can have as well a masala chai !
Bravo, congrats for this milestone

Thanks for the tea, and congratulations on your #800. I was not aware that you had posted so many pictures. Unfortunately the ready-mixed Indian chai is far too sweet for me, but it's a nice picture from a very good POV where we can watch the customers from inside the stall. The strong contrasts in light have been beautifully handled. A very interesting and attractive photo.

your point of view and composition are original and interesting, you chose the side of the vendor and gave us an idea of both his stall and customers. Your picture has suberb depth and definition, in spite of the large shady areas and the strong contrast with the outside view. Both areas are clear and feel cozy. There wasn't any animated discussion at the moment of the capture but relaxation and closeness are quite apparent. Congratulations on your wonderful and meticulous work, thank you very much for the care you put into your pictures and comments!
All the best, have a great day,

Congrats and all the best

I like the low framing and the seller's gesture while customers in the lighted area taste their tea.
josepmarin (57473) 2013-10-25 10:29
first, my congratulations for your reached milestone: 800 photos published in the site.
You celebrate this event with a real challenge in this cross-light from inside the tea-shop, creating an efficient chiaroscuro, which give a pleasant atmosphere to the scene.
A good management of exposure, and a good quality of image and of colours.
I wait for another 800 more.

I liked this a lot! The POV is unique, from behind the tea maker. This is what makes a picture different...well done on that!
