This fruit and vegetable seller was sitting at his stall in the Markets in Mumbai, India. He was very fastidious about how his vegetables were displayed. In his own way he is an artist too. It was about 35 degrees and his little fan behind him was keeping him cool. He was very accommodating, when I asked to take his shot, and he sat up straight as if he was proud of himself and his showcase of goodies.

In the chaos and hectic nature of India, this man’s stall spoke of order and neatness. It was refreshing to see.

    love this one Coralie – there is always great artistry to be found in food markets and your “order amongst the chaos” description is spot on.

    Lovely portrait Coralie. Did you manage to get one before he saw you. A candid shot can often work really well but you have to be quick.

    I didn’t catch a candid one Peter…still trying to deal with the fact that I feel like I’m invading people’s privacy if I don’t have their permission…one day!

    Hey should be proud… somewhere in there is an artist… I’d have no quams buying vegies off this guy… (though I’d wash them in clean water first) ..

    A good documentary / travel image. Brings the flavor and people from other countries to the viewer. I like the fact that aside from the carrots and tomatoes, all veggies are green. The redtomatoes, white shirt and orange carrots are also in the same plane so the ciewer attention is drawn right to the person and then explore the rest of the image…
