Bonsoir Michel,
Superbe cliché d'une grande précision. Le grand angle permet d'embrasser toute la baie en deux fois, très réussi.
Les couleurs et la lumière naturelles sont très jolies.
Bien vu !

Default Re: To sabyasachi1212: Wallah

The meaning in Encyclopedia is correct, but it does not necessarily mean a steet vendor. A Rickshaw (hand-cart) puller is called Rickshaw"wallah" while a water carrier is called Visty"wallah". Anyway, it usually depicts a person involved in a lowly profession, which going by your photograph seems an apt description.
Regards
Sabyasachi

Thanks Sabyasachi! :)
actually i knew that he was "something" wallah, because he was selling some kind of food i think in the street but i couldnt work it out what it was exactly, so i just said only "wallah".. (a mistake of for sure.. it needs a definition as you say..)

anyway, thanks a lot for your detailed information..
Best wishes.
