Copper embossery

Varanasi backstreets are really full of life and artists

Loulou, finally, not so perfect.... Hope you're not too disappointed ! ;-P

Looks very ornate, whatever they are making here; did they tell you what it will be when finished ? Looks like the guy in the back was happy to have his photo taken, or bemused at any rate, as though maybe not the first time they've been photographed? Love the blue setting around them...

Not so perfect but perfection is boring remember? :-)
Nice shot. They can work/live in such small and confined space...
Balance between blue and orange/red is stunning. No other colour to "disturb" them!
See you
Loulou
ps - a little headache, too much champagne at Owen's party ;-)

@Owen : The guy in the background posed as a model, and really loved the picture I shot. ;-)
@Loulou : I will remember... :-D
@Patricia : Thanks !
@AmyR : The work is done at incredible pace, they never slow down, and keep the rythm...
@Babzy : Automne sur le plateau, mais l'été dans la vallée ! ;-)
