The Mazdoor

Now a days I am not posting much because I do not go out that often. But the kind of street shots I like are actually there right outside my house. today, during my afternoon walk, I met this bunch of ‘Mazdoor’. A mozdoor is a laborer in Urdu.

Resting after a day’s work:

In he morning, at a different spot, many mazdoors gather like this and wait for some one to come and hire them for a days’s work. Tough! No guarantees here.

They were to happy to pose and some were more forthcoming than the others.

Taken with my mobile phone. I did promos them to photograph them with my Fuji on some other day.

    Gosh, it seems months since you posted Dr_IQ, but I’m so glad you did. The second image is particularly good. Hope you post some more soon.

  4. Dr_IQ it is great to see you posting. These are wonderful images. I particularly like the first solo image. You’ve captured him with a wistful look in his eyes.
    I hope we’ll see more of your images.
    I hope your teaching is going well.
