Flower ladies at the market place

To me they looked as pretty as the flowers they were selling. Especially the one on the left. Women, especially Indian women are not easy to photograph. Simply because they are very conservative. And if some random stranger walks up to them and asks for a picture, there are chances that you might end up in trouble. The moment I feel that they are not comfortable in talking to me, I just walk away.

For this shot, I mustered the courage and went to speak. Surprisingly, they turned out to be friendly. I took a lot of shots of them. Group portraits, portraits of their kids, their portraits along with their kids. It was so much fun. I’ll be sharing the others as well real soon. Here’s one from the shoot.
