The Little India

The people, their trades and habits has traces of the past, although some have already modernized and re-invent themselves to keep up. In Little India, we see a continuum of history. Their diversities are expressed outwardly with warm and friendliness. It was a journey, a humbling one, while documenting the streetscape and the people. People are what make the street interesting. They are featured prominently, architecture and the environment become secondary, helping to establish context and support the story told in each photograph.

Description Drawn with Platinum Desk Pen 14K EF Nib with Atramentis Archive Ink.  Along The Buffalo Road are many shops selling vegetables and through the years the numbers have increased. Selling vegetables have perhaps been more profitable than selling spices. Daisy Green occupies two shop lots and it is one whose business is flourishing. The displays overflow to the five-foot ways and turns round the corner along the partition wall. Every space is worthy of more business opportunity.
