Sitting on the Side of the Road

Squatting with Bicycles

Squatting with Bicycles

All over India, it is easy to spot people relaxing on the side of the road. Some are resting after the effort of work, others from the extreme heat, others are pensioners and some could even be waiting for work. Naturally, they are easy and good subjects for any photographer.

Some of the subjects take notice of you and smile and others barely see you.

Others are busy watching the scene around them, just as I am.

Taking a Break

This man appears to truly need this break.

Weighing In

This man smiles agreeably, happy to make a sale.

Thus everyone sits by the side of the road in India, for various reasons but all with the intention to relax and see what is going on in the street; irresistible to anyone with a camera!

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.
