Bangladesh, so many cycles, so, many rickshaws. Here in the chicken market of Barisal, one of the most interesting towns that we visited during our trip. Don't ask me why, there are no "sights" to visit and it certainly was not a culinary experience being there. But an abundance of friendly people and colorful streets.
We stop here first at the poultry market. The chickens and ducks are brought to the market in baskets tied onto rickshaws and leave one by one as they are chosen for dinner.
Excellent market shot and daily life image. One I knew all too well. Reminded me of my childhood time. I vividly remember being with my mom to pick out a couple of chickens for me, a hen and a rooster, so I can keep them in our yard. I raised them, till the hen laid eggs and hatched them. I took care of the chicks. It was such font memories for me...Though I don't remember what happen to all the chicks after they have grown. Probably ended up on the dinner table, but my mom never told me about it :)
Yes the rickshaws make it well fitting for the ToM.
The feeling of warm friendliness comes through well in your image, I felt that before I noticed the rickshaws. However, these rickshaw feel like the real deal, unlike the pedicabs of Thailand. People are far more interesting than scenery. GLV, Pat
I always appreciate your photos because they bring the richness of the daily life of this people. Many beautiful colors, details and customs that would make great documentaries. All very well captured with excellent quality as always.
