A Morning at Russel Market

A bunch of us shutterbugs met at Russel Market last weekend to spend time clicking. It was the first time I was there, and also the first time I was trying to shoot in a marketplace. I had a good time with the camera, and here are some images.

How is this pose?

This old man was ever-smiles and was glad to pose when I requested. When I was done, he asked in near perfect English: “For what purpose you are taking photos?”

Starting of another day..

This man was looking a little worried. He was immersed in his own world and hardly noticed the camera that was aimed at him.


“I have every kind of vegetables. Which one do you want?!”

Man and his assets!

From Russel Market, we moved on to St.Mary’s Basilica. I found this guy just outside the Church, having his breakfast. I guess he was sitting in shade when he started, but Sun eventually moved up to displace the shadow. I had a hard time trying to figure out why he was facing the wall, and never figured out the answer.

    Great Pics ! I guess in last photo that man turned towards wall just b’coz of privacy when he have the breakfast or inorder to avoid the dust on the road as he was having food @ open space.
