Kolkata Life

Like yesterday, another shot from the end of the school day in Kolkata, India. Both of these were taken from a moving vehicle.

I will be out of town the rest of the week in Salt Lake City for a conference so I may not respond to comments for a little bit.

It's strange the way that a triangular configuration for group portraits always works. And this one does, exceptionally well.

Add in some beautiful lighting and it makes a superb shot.

I would never have guessed this was from a moving vehicle! Great colors and expressions. That one boy sure needs some new socks!

It appears that the child looks inside the shoe, looking for that missing socks piece ... very good, Charles smile

A great capture from a moving vehicle. I love the warm colors and the boy's well-pronounced "hole" in his sock. The boy seems to be looking in his shoe for the culprit that made the hole in his sock. smile
nice one.
the hole in the sock is a classic.
As usual, you've given us wonderful color and composition.

A lovely candid...the light and strong saturation are superb!
Beautiful Charless. Brilliant colors and a good composition.

If it was the UK the lad on the left wouldn't be holding a shoe in his hand - it would be a mobile phone! Nice shot Charles

Quick reflexes. I like the juxtaposition of ochre and azure- and the look on their faces.

Ah! Enfin, un pied qui respire doublement !
Intéressante scène d'adolescents qui soignent comme ils peuvent leur look !
Bonne conférence!
Bonne journée lumineuse et chaleureuse!
Trois beaux collégiens encore, et bien vêtus, mais un mauvais point pour la chaussette !
Les routes sont pleines d'ornières sans doute !
Belle photo, Charles.
Merci de tes très aimables visites.

Stunning! I would have never realized this or yesterday's photo was taken from a moving vehicle. Really like the turquoise doorway framing them and how he's examining his shoe.

Reminds me of my childhood. There is a certain look to Indian schoolchildren that is stuck in a past age. Nicely captured
Marvelous! "There's a hole in my shoe"
This is a superb capture of a moment in their life !

I really like this opposition between the brown/beige/gold and the blue. It definitely makes the subject more interesting.
