But in the end, just a great photo; makes me smile inside. :o) Reply ↓ Beautiful shot, Joshi, the man’s posture and face are relaxed, tired, determined, experienced, just as he has been going through his whole life. Very nice. Reply ↓ Cracking image, I love it Reply ↓ Cycling hard…it needs strength cycling in water… :-) Reply ↓ A really great capture. Love the feel of it. Reply ↓ Spot on photograph! There’s tension in the wheels wading through the water, there’s tension in the way he sits on the bike and how his face looks. It begs the question, what has this man been through today (or for that matter, his whole life)? I just randomly stumbled upon your site, but I’m going to follow! Really amazing portfolio.

Reply ↓ Fine image – I can almost hear the splashes… Reply ↓ wonderful pic Reply ↓ Amazing he’s going out in just that on such a wet day. Reply ↓ Great image ! Reply ↓ What a ride! What an image … ! Reply ↓ Another great shot, Joshi. I was fascinated when I was in India by watching all the goods being transported by men on bikes. There were some situations I just couldn’t believe were possible, like a man carrying a two-foot stack of fabrics on one side of the bike and pedaling along. I just couldn’t see how he could balance and propel that much weight, too. Reply ↓ Reblogged this on themonkseal. Reply ↓ Beautiful capture … Reply ↓ Lovely!! Reply ↓ Well done! Reply ↓ There is a sadness about the pic… His stance is as if after all that has happened to me today, I now have to pedal through this rain… Reply ↓ Nice subject matter. Sure do like your real life settings. Reply ↓ Amazing! Reply ↓ Great capture Reply ↓ Ohh my… this pic. makes me remember a lot of things in my past related to my father. What a great talent have you got Joshi. God bless you! Reply ↓ When it rains in India it surely rains! I love the look of concentration on the guy’s face. Given what can hide under the water it’s very understandable that he is fully focused. Reply ↓ Oh no! Is it the raining season now there? Great shot, Joshi and wishing you well and safe! Reply ↓ great shot ! Reply ↓ Natural picture with a great resolution. Bringing real-life activities to life. Great posting. Reply ↓ Nice. Very nice.
