As I often do when traveling, I made quite a few shots from our moving vehicle, a bus in this case. It’s always a bit of pot luck, but every now and then there’s something that makes me say ‘yes!’. Not yet a week in India, but this shot represents it for me in so many details: the little school girl in school uniform walking out of the frame, the young man in western clothes just walking into it; remnants of posters torn off the wall, a brand-new one (probably political) stuck to it, the ochre-yellow washed wall next to that, the old woman in a saree chatting to also saree-clad the fruit seller, almost hidden behind her little stall and umbrella against the sun, the roof of her fruit stall made from coconut leaves and remnants of one of the ubiquitous huge billboards (or hoardings as they’re called here)…
