In the morning, a man is walking and smoking in the lane of Pahargang.
About the photograph:
I was having an after breakfast wander in Pahargang when the light on the wall above caught my attention. It was early in the morning, the sun was slowly rising and the lane was still dark. I really liked the contrast of the whole scene but there was not much interest for a photograph. Some people walked by and I then noticed that the face of some of them were lit by the same ray of light. At this moment, I organised my composition and waited for the right pedestrian. It was quite difficult because the person needed to walk into the light, be tall enough but not too tall and have an interesting expression on his face. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long.
Pahargang is the main touristic area in Delhi. A busy place surrounded by shops, markets, bars & restaurants, hotels & cheap guesthouses where all sorts of foreigners mix with each other and Indian people.
