Bored/ Street Photography in Jaipur

Have you ever waited? Waited for a long time? I captured the following set of pictures during a photo walk in Jaipur. It was the same photo walk which I mentioned in 11 seconds.

You can read some of these interesting photo walks in Jaipur in these links –Photo Walk in Jaipur Faceless Frames ” Hands”, Eye-less, Shapes.


It was early morning. These two men were sitting on a tractor in one of the old bazaars of Jaipur. I have no clue as to what they were waiting for. Maybe for the customer. Maybe to meet someone. Just a guess! But they looked extremely bored. Especially the driver.



Have you ever waited? Do you get bored as well? I do, sometimes but most of the times in a busy market like this, there is enough to see and do.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. When I clicked this picture, I didn’t pay much attention to his expression. Sometimes you end up clicking things unknowingly. Perhaps, you were lucky that day! What is your experience?


      1. Earlier, we both used to carry cameras and would click to our freedom and later collate. However, with Aayansh things have changed as one of us is always busy handling him. So, we end up deciding beforehand like my latest post on Jamali Kamali…I covered it 🙂🙂

      2. Surely, kids change the equation. Well, in a few years time thing’s will change again and you guys can revert back. How old is Aayansh? Also collating means getting the best pictures. 😃👍


  1. These people on your photos almost look depressed. Perhaps they are bored with the monotony that comes with their job. I fight boredom by reading a good book while I am waiting. Have a great day, Arv!

    1. That’s a very valid judgement and logical too. I think some jobs or routines associated with them are monotonous and demanding. Reading book is a good option where job conditions allow you to do so. I think that is a very productive use of time. I’m happy that you like to utilize your free time. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Esha. I agree. The streets have so many interesting subjects to capture. I agree that monochrome brings out the best of emotions. I had mentioned a few months ago that I will figure out a way to join WW. I may not be regular here but will join whenever I can, Esha. 😃

      2. Sure, Esha. I will. There are many people hosting WW, a lot of them are on blogger platform. I try to post for both WW and Thursday tree love, but it is not always possible. I’m happy to join you guys. 😃

  2. Love this, Arv. I have quite a few similar images from India, like in little shops, people appear looking bored. Yet I always took it as either they were waiting for clients or just being tired from what ever is going on in their lives. Happy Photography to you.

    1. Nice perspective, Cornelia! I feel some jobs are monotonous and some people are unable to take a break like most of us. Either they can’t afford to or it’s their work profile. I will love to see the clicks you mentioned. 🙂


  3. So happy to have you link up with us Arvind for #WW. Your pictures are always a delight and out of the ordinary. Hope to see you often, whenever you can that is, minus any pressures.

    Love the “I’m relaxed” look on the man’s face.

  4. Not long time ago, I was pretty bored and nervous while waiting… I could say I hated waiting, so I tried to be late, in order not to wait if possible))) Currently, I’ve change my attitude and trying to thankful for this moments of waiting. If to use positive attitude – waiting might be pleasant as well. You might check the thing around, relax, stop thinking for a while =D

    1. Great attitude, Lidia! If we can utilize this time in some ways, it is definitely “time earned”. In many situations, we don’t have control over how others treat our time but we can surely change our attitude. 🙂


    1. I guess you are right. So many emotions. Sonia, you have a great writing skills. Let me know if you would like to use this picture. I will be very keen to read your interpretation of this scene. 😃
