Probably my last posting and last of this series....
i went to this place for shooting this image of the workers and then started talking with them, then started feeling their problem, i thought i should show this to everybody after Sohrab pushed me in the front... i must say i enjoyed the company with them, shared their feelings and tried to show other people,
I thank everybody Specially Francis and Ishai for their support and being with me with the series,looked carefully and inspired me with the images, I should thank Arindam for being a part of this series, with his images as well as himself for being with me each and every moment of this series... we discussed about the photos, about the sequence and the texts...
I found this dump of the yellow bags while roaming around the floors of the buling under construction...
I found a similarity of color with their helmet (safety cap)... it was like a color of pure gold,like a freshness and gorgeousness...
I dont know how much i could tell you all about their problem, but i know i have tried it hard, may be i will give another try again after sometime,i promise i will show that to you all...
I treat this picture as their life, as their struggle to existance...

Wonderful picture - the colors are excellent and you get a feel for the people from their body language.

I do not like one thing here, they are not looking interested(the direction of there look)make me wonder why they find that side more interesting than the famous photographer from TE ???

good workers portrait in situation, I like the yellow color and the natural light.
The low POV is good but it's a pity they don't look at you.

It is a wonderfull picture to end this serie! I had a lot of pleasure to see it. These yellow bag with his yellow helmet and with the dark background... this is beautiful. Well done!

this photo is even more impactful because of the strong color touch! pity you cropped their feet though.. You could have lowered the camera a tiny bit ;-) Still a good photo and a nice series!

Hi Sandip, You have well made use of light in this indoor shot. Good to see the half bright half dark face in contrast with the not well lighted room. A very well taken picture with good color and light contrast. It looks that these guys were proud what they were doing.

Hi Sandip. I like this color photo... I have liked the b/w as well but it is good to see one in color. the composition is really good and a nice match of helmet and sacks. good work.

i think this color one is the best of your series, it tells a lot, and an image with a good lot of character! a strong image, with nice elements of composition.
PS: any idea of Claude? he is somewhere in south. are you people meeting by any chance?

Unlike most of your snaps, which normally are in color. Good shot from the daily life. the light and colors are also really good.

You must be best friends with these workers by now :O) Lovely shots you have taken! As you say yourself, this yellow colour with the light coming in is really nice - and matching the safety cap.
Look forward to your next serie :O)

this is the second shot from this place, but this one is wonderful with the colorful enviroment with the worker's natural expression.
it seems they were waiting for the result how much they could get.
I like it a lot. oh, no, i like the color version a lot.

Please don't say that, Sandip!

"Honestly except that the yellow color with black background which is a good contrast, I do not see any message/life in your picture”!!!! :) Ha Ha Ha, just joking, I know what yellow means to you.
This is such a quality picture, straight to my fav.
Yes, it was a fun, our Sunday Adventure, and SAD, once we know their life and problems.
Hope we can do more stories like this, together...

I think this serie revealed you as a great photographer really and beacuse you were clothed to these worker and you got in touch with them it is the secret for good photos
well done really

Superbe image où ce jaune du casque se repporte sur les jaunes des sacs.
J'aime bien aussi la pose des 2 mecs, un peu posé, mais sympa.
J'aurais peut-être juste aimé qu'ils te regardent...
Belle prise, avec une bonne hestion de la lumière et du contraste.

Nice picture with good yallow colors on the hat of the man and good posture. I like it
prumod (8300) 2005-12-21 6:22
it's very special one... those yellow circles formed by bags are nicely acting as such a good background pattern... and it's very interesting that those feloows are watching sombody else...
