Chandi Chowk, the main street of old (pre-Raj) Delhi, runs west from the Lahore Gate of the Red Fort. It is the heart of the commercial district, and a scene of constant chaos and commerce (and chaotic commerce), which I tried to capture a sense of in this scene.

So you are visiting India these days??
Well it is no surprising scene .. The streets of Delhi , Kolkata and Mumbai is often crowded with the rickshaws and autos...
Anyways , it must be interesting to you seeing how they manage the street and often end up quarreling among each other.. :)

It certainly is a scene of great chaos. It makes one wonder if they ever sort it out. It seems you were part of it. You took your opportunity well with camera at the ready.

I wonder what is like to live in a place like this one, with so many around all the time. The street seem very busy but my standards. Excellent documentary composition with a deep sense of the social situation of this city. Nice light and details. Thanks Dan.
