JUmma Bazaar … The Customers

Continuing from the last post, here is a cross section of customers.

The Ladies shopping alone:


A seasoned couple. The helmet tells me that they came on a bike and amazingly will carry the purchases on the bike too:


A young couple, complete with a kid:


And I told you it was a hot day:

    Lovely to see positive images of life in Pakistan. In general, do people mind being photographed? I noticed that the young mother has turned her face away from the camera.

    Thanks. It is a bit complex matter. It is easy to photograph those who are lower on the social ladder such as shop keepers, beggars etc. But in general, one should be careful while photographing females. It is not considered socially correct. Equally important is the photographer. Somebody like me whose body language can be trusted can probably get away with such encounters.

    The photo of the young couple is cropped. I was at a safe distance. She is probably eying the quality of the vegetable on sale.

    One thing is for sure. One can always photograph a cute kid. The parents feel happy and proud.

  3. It is interesting that it’s tourists who are more likely to take photographs of people on the street, but locals are the ones who know when and where it’s appropriate. Perhaps street photography guide should be a profession. Very nice work.

      Thanks. True, a foreign tourist would be tolerated more and hardly anyone would object. I too feel bolder when traveling to other countries.

  4. The color shots are great. I specially like the first one. The girl on the right is making the picture.

      Thanks. I visited a market like this after a long time time and enjoyed the atmosphere thoroughly. Taking photographs was a bonus.
