While in the main street the regular marketstuf is being sold there are allways sideways where farmerswives sit down to sell there goods just before them on the street. Here three elder women, the most common group on markets, are sellingb their herbes and vegetables while discussing the things that life had brought lately, covering their heads for the sun whio already sweeps up the temperature on a this warm day.

At least they can have a nice chat when business is slow!
A well done slice of daily life, also as a triple portrait with their different expressions so well captured...
Good framing, pleasant natural colours and fine details!

Welcome back from your travels Gerrit. I am looking forward to seeing all your photos from this less-visited country.
Excellent daily life shot. I love the expression on the middle one's face as she tells her story, and the unusual head covering tells its own story. They have even brought a water spray to keep the vegetables fresh.

il fait chaud, chaud a voir les mamy avec leurs "chapeaux", beau cadrage de ce lieu qui je présume est un marché aux légumes, belle lumiére qui éclaire ces Ladies..

Very a well caught daily image. These selling vegetable women in a market, chatting and hoping to sell its products, they form a very natural and spontaneous scene.
Illuminated well, excellent colors and great sharpness.

Next time try to take the picture with the people looking at you. In that case, I think it will be better than it is.

Good job and thanks for sharing...

I relly love this triple portrait of these women. The daily life scene is very well captured and perfectly composed, with lovely details to observe. I love their natural expressions and the gree vegetables in foreground. The cover on their heads is a funny touch. Excelent shot!

Goede plaat. Zo dichtbij nen toch niet opgemerkt of een zware telelens gebruikt?

I can empathize with the women's tired expressions, I feel the same way in the heat. The bright green of the vegetables, with the sprayer to keep them fresh provides excellent contrast to the steaming heat of the women against the baking wall. I've added this to one of the many market themes, HLJ, Pat
