A scan from an oldie to celebrate International Labour Day.
The men in the picture are making 'roti', a kind of ultrathin pancake, fried, then folded and served with a hearty sauce. The best breakfast in the world, if you ask me!

This is a great shot - very well composed and it captures the scene from daily life telling us the story of the culture and place. I really like this.
Chelsea - might be the fly in the ointment that result and Man City have a better goal difference so even if we win last two games we now have to hope City lose or draw.

A great, daily life scene which, by its viewpoint, takes us through most of the process.
You have used a great dof, focussing well on the main man!
Have a great day,

Yes, rotis are delicious, and so are many other Indian kinds of bread. This is an informative and appetizing picture, especially considering the last stage of the process, near the exit.
This could be a suitable picture for labour day, as long as the baker doesn't demand more money or better working conditions. Labour rights in Malaysia are fairly limited, although there are worse places.

Hope all is well (apologies for my long TE sabbatical).
An oldie but a goodie I see here. I can taste the wonderful food of Malaysia here, smell the scents, wrapped in that incessant humidity , a wonderful country, and cool shot, slicing through that humidity.
p.s worth checking out a a new band 'Warpaint' from LA, quite good stuff.

Great timing to nail that moment where the dough is stretched and the motion is great. The guy is in control, he knows what he is doing, and it is an interesting expression in the context.
I appreciate the way you have framed this scene, the artisan in the top corner offering all the space to the working surface and the action taking place.
Good light, good colour mood, strong perspective.
