When travelling in Asia (or anywhere), I am always drawn to the street food vendors, not only for the best food one can eat, but also for the light, steam, smoke, action and scents that make photo opportunities so good.
This was in Singapore, where excellent street food still exists, in the form of the Hawker center and at least one can partake in good food, prepared by small vendors, eaten alfresco in the humid night air, a welcome thing in what can be an otherwise sanitised place.

I have to agree with you that the best food in Southeast Asia can be found on the streets plus this is where the real live is happening.
This is a very dynamic street shot and the black and white works perfectly here. Very well seen and beautifully presented.
have a good week

Long time no hear, I hope you've been well. I like how this has been shot through the window, which has provided some creative reflections and effects. The grain works a treat and the contrast of light has really highlighted the food that the men are cooking. Nice work. Hungry now.
Have a lovely weekend

Adequate B&W street life picture, and I like the grainy aspect to make us think that it's an old picture.

I like your black and white compositions on daily life. Here also a nice one. The mood is depicted superbly in it. Nice use of grains which also help to create an atmosphere. Excellent one. Tfs.
