Nice, that one makes me think about my teen age(14-18), 4 years in Angola... Even to clean, you have to be strong: Nice Picture!
NGM Photo of the day is degrading quality day by day.
This one shot is having only compositional value and I doubt about its Photojournalistic approach to be genuine.
Sorry If I an rude, Just expected PHOTO OF THE DAY like the old days.
Sorry once again.
Timeless , a process continued on through out many centuries no doubt and well captured in this photo.
In a world of mechanised production of food, it is refreshing to see the connection between a worker and his produce. Nevertheless, this would be hard work and it is only in the abstract that milling my own food is appealing. The photo shows that there are at least 6 workers and it is possible to divine the styles of several of them. The one on the left uses broad sweeps whilst the right sided style is more staccato. I wonder if this reflects their personalities.
I like the rawness on display: the rice, the concrete and shoeless worker all reflect an austere life. Likewise the photo. Well done to Mr Ghosh on the accolade of photo of the day.
