Scene of Hindu pilgrims doing light laundry and drying in the late afternoon sun on the lakeside ghat, linking them to mythological & religious significance of Pushkar: It's great to witness Life and People in a World so different from my own...

Just a simple snap

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Voilà tout l'intérêt du site, apprendre par la photographie, les us et coutumes du pays.
Ici, la présentation prise sur le vif est parfaite pour rendre compte des coutumes.
Belle réussite.

Namaste Abmdsudi,

I traveled Pushkar in the year 2010, this is very wonderful place, an annual fair organize every year in the month of November, though you say it is simple but I think you captured a nice daily life of Pushkar, the direction is not favourable but sharpness and color are good.

warm regards,


  • Great

I was in the edge of the lake taking photos, but I didn't saw such curious scenes. instead of this I found people wanting my money, something very annoying. nice this view , with a surprising touch.



Hello Abmdsudi,
Another well realised daily life image. Nicely framed to capture the animation in the scene. I like very much the lights and colours.

Hello Abmdsudi,

You have taken a good technical shot considering that you were facing the sun.
I just love the effect of the outstretched sheets, catching the sunlight and the long diagonal shadows created by the figures.
I don't think I have ever seen such an interesting shot of washing!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Good day.
Beautiful view of the moment, a good text ...
Good work, nice place and pilgrims demonstrated, a good contrast of beautiful colors, beautiful moment captured.
The beautiful coastline of the lake.
Nice afternoon and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating backlight, lovely composition with wonderful shadows, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Abmdsudi,

Ce serait beaucoup plus simple et surtout beaucoup moins fatigant d'avoir une corde au lieu de tenir son linge au vent pour le sécher. Mais c'est tout de même un beau moment de la vie quotidienne.



Hello Abmdsudi,

good image of this daily scene, you captured an interesting moment showing the silhouettes of the people drying their clothes, well seen,

Best regards,

Hello Abmdsudi,
A beautiful photo where the low angle, warm sunlight is beautiful and adds such long shadows to the photo. The silhouettes of the people doing the laundry at the side of the river stand out nicely against the blue of the water.

Hello Abmdsudi
Interesting daily life scene from Pushkar. Great composition ,good quality.
Fine presentation

Hello Abmdsudi,
You mean, they just stand there and shake the laundry in the sun until it dries? Don't they get tired? At any rate, it is a nice daily life photo. I like the long shadows.

Namaste Abmdsudi,

The back light has been well managed with still plenty of colour and saturation. Good sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts. I like the translucent quality of the white cloths with the sun shining through them. Tfs!
