Contemplation or Boredom?

Caught this girl - a provision shop seller staring off into space and blank expression of the face looking thoroughly bored. I really like the emotion or lack there of that came through. I would have thought that life was anything but boring in bustling Asan Tol, Kathmandu, but then again, there are exceptions.

I was very much attracted by the setting and the architecture beautifully blends with the mood, but fully respected her very private enclosed feel...

Setting: 90 mm, 1/200 sec, F4.2, ISO Raw 200, 0901 hrs

Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
La vendeuse semble perdue dans ses pensées et rêve peut-être d'un autre horizon !
Belle composition.

Hello Abmdsudi

She might also be depressed because nobody is buying anything. A superb daily life scene from Nepal with good sharpness and excellent framing. The outdoor street market has some interesting and practical items for sale. Tfs!

Hello Abmdsudi,
She may have been bored, but may she was just pondering on some important question. Excellent photo of this shopfront with many fine details. The colours of the products on offer and the girl’s coat are appealing, especially against the darker background. Very well spotted, captured and composed.

Hello a.
She looks rather bored. How not to be bored when there are no customers. A charming scene from the street in Kathmandu.

Kind regards Malgo
