In the Bazaars of Hyderabad: Flower Markets

Jambagh Flower Market
Flower markets are fun places to go to. There are big wholesale ones in Gudimalkapur and Jambagh, not far from my home in Hyderabad. Piles and piles of flowers of different kinds at unbelievable prices (but you'll have to buy at least a kg because these are wholesale markets), tons of flower decoration accessories and smiling faces all around - happy-making stuff :)
Some pictures from the Gudimalkapur and Jambagh flower markets that I shot many many months ago:
We ran into soooo many smiling faces :)
These kids were hanging out at the market and having so much fun
He's not so smiley in this picture, but he was really smiley in person :)

    1. Thank you Pree! When I shoot pictures of people, I invariably show them their picture on my camera's LCD - that makes it interactive, and also fun for them, so they get more comfortable with the camera and smile more :) Giving them prints is something I have often thought about, but never got around to - these markets are very crowded and finding the same person again might be pretty hard, but yes, I must try some day!
