Cleaning Chores

I was trying to take a portrait shot of someone who I came across from the street. And in the background I saw this. A lady, busy, washing clothes. It was a slum area where I was doing my photo walk this time and I think this place is supposed to be her back yard. It was more of a dump. A huge empty ground covered with garbage. Across which I saw this lady washing clothes. This candid was very easy to take as I zoomed in from a real far distance this time to get this one. Thanks to that garbage yard in between us and my trusty Nikon L120.

Lady washing clothes. Must be a house wife of that house behind her.

  1. I will never again complain that my house or my yard is a mess. Thank you for these shots. I want to sit and take the time to actually study each one. Though these people may not live in the best of circumstances, you have captured a feeling of joy in most, a common humanity.

    1. You read my pictures like a book paul. I’m so glad to hear that. It gives me immense joy when i connect with people using my pictures as a medium. With both my subjects as well as audience. Thanks so much. Keep visiting.
