Shadow Shot Sunday #6 (49)

Sunday: Australia time. Couldn’t wait till it was Sunday in India to post this week’s SSS.

Had to go to rural Shahpur (some 60 kms and more from Bombay) for work this week. I kept spotting shadows at every turn, but really had to rein myself in. Could not afford to be spotted going berserk with the camera in the villages 🙂


Even as we sat, this clean, cow-dung swept floor was busy inviting these sunny shadows into the house. Village: Ghegaon


These poppadoms drying in the sun are part of the enterprising local women’s group effort to make a little money on the side. Its packaged and sold later in the nearby markets; the money is pooled back into their savings group. Village: Ghegaon


Once the rain arrives, sometime in late June, this wooden roof frame will see clay tiles. Until then, it serves as the cloth dryer for this family in village Vithalgaon


A once-colourful basket stood on a stack of firewood, under the midday sun, with just a wooden beam casting a narrow shade.

Happy Sunday!

    I love these photos! I especially like the one of poppadoms drying. When I lived in Leicester I used to be able to see into the gardens at the back of my house and a family who would dry them in the sun on large pieces of sari fabric.
