Faces of India – 116

I was desperately trying to get the vegetable seller’s attention to get a decent click. A buyer there noticed my desperation immediately he sportingly picked up a cauliflower and posed for me. So sweet of him, no?

Shot taken near Shimla while on our trip to Kufri.

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here.

    Two things that came to my mind after seeing this photo….

    1- He is holding gold in his hand, 80-90 Rs KG 😀 No wonder he grinning like he has got hold of some khazana!

    2- When we had gone to SHimla couple of years back, we had eaten this gobhi ki subji at a restaurant and it had tasted so amazingly well ki i can nto tell you. Wahan ki subji has a freshness!!!

  8. He is such a sport! Nice click! 🙂

  9. I think this is s great portrait Indrani!

    Best regards from the Netherlands,
