Business as Usual

Mother and Son team start work early. Mum sweeps and her son collects anything that might be worth a few Rupees. He should be on his way to school but its too expensive and his daily earnings matter. I bought some old cable from them. I was on my way to work too and after a chat and exchanged smiles, we parted ways. I had a very tough day that day but kept my mind on my new found friends.

    Love them…….
    The camera is at waist height, were you using the screen or bending down and using the viewfinder. I ask because I like the viewpoint and it encourages me to think more flexibly about how I work with the camera.

      Glad you like these!
      For both of them I was kneeling looking through the view finder. They were shot at 24mm (full frame camera so pretty wide) and as close as possible. I think ideally would have been closer to 20mm but I had only 24-70 lens.
      Thanks for asking; it’s nice to talk about it and makes me want to go and photograph something!
