    much is happening in this photo without being crowded or too busy .. must be a joy to walk up to a scene and start shooting … I am certain some of these photos "take themselves" … but of course "luck favors the prepared mind" :)

The story behind "Laundry service in Agra, part 2: cooking the laundry"

Part 2 of the Agra laundry service. The clothes get boiled in large kettles with warm water. I am not sure how many degrees it was inside the kettles, but it was already 45 degrees centigrade outside, so I assume it was hot :-)

These people keep on smiling, while doing the hard work for almost no pay day in, day out..
