After almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), I am back to renew the relationship.
This is from Mumbai (Marine Drive for those who know) and one encounters quite a typical evening scene. An ad shooting is going on (inane anyway), but there is a motley crowd enjoying in its own way. The man with the yellow shirt is fitting the big camera on a scooter, while curious onlookers surround. Meanwhile, a lady in black continues her evening routine. The people in the vehicles have a distinct glow on their faces.
A special mention must be made of the man on the left looking at me with an interesting eye. He was there to ensure crowd control and that no one clicks, and he wasn't happy when he saw me with the camera.
Meanwhile, I bought a Nikon D3300, hope I am able to justify that.

welcome back :-) The picture you are presenting today is typical every day life one and it is very natural. It is a very good document of the street scene with crowd of people driving vehicles, walking on the pavement or just simply standing and talking. Good framing, sharpness and colors.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day ahead

A busy street scene with lots going to entertain the casual passer-by as well as the viewers of your photograph. Very well presented with good light, colours and sharpness.

Like the world over, people cannot help but be curious about anything unusual. A photographic episode, when there is a chance of seeing a celebrity or being on the photograph oneself, can cause something like hysteria.
This is a most interesting shot, with a very good storyline. The parked motorbike and the staring man, demand immediate attention, before the lines draw us into the shot and the story. I love the attention given by the lady in the car and the men on the motorbike, they are really portraying curiosity!
Have a great day,

Excellent composition, nice depth and perspective picture.

This is an interesting street-shot with a lot of activities going on. I immediately identified this as Marine Drive. On the last evening of my first journey to India, lasting more than 4 months, more than 40 years ago, I walked along the Arabian Sea at sunset. Although I then had mixed feelings about India I almost started to cry because I felt I was leaving a country that after all had dug itself deep into my soul. I felt a deep sorrow at the prospect of possibly never returning. Luckily, since then I have been back about a dozen times :-).
