[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have great respect and admiration for the street vendors of India who cater to the general public. Lacking the finances to build a proper shop they toil in all weather conditions moving their wares to different locations to suit their business needs.
This lady was selling fruits and flowers and coconuts for the devotees of a local temple. In the course of the day she had to move two times. The family members also share in this small but important enterprise.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you appreciate them and also the candid portrait of this remarkable woman.

Hi Muhammad,
Very much I like such realistic pictures, showing the everyday life. The photograph is introducing us to places at which perhaps we will never arrive.
The good work, the nice composition, natural colours, many expressions in shown the figure of the woman.

Hi Muhammad
Excellent shot. All elements captured here are interesting to me.
The woman is a great character, showing her clothes and her facial features.
